Will my employer be notified if I file for bankruptcy?

Generally, in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, your employer will not be notified (unless it is a creditor).  In a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, the trustee will usually issue a notice to your employer directing it to withhold the monthly plan payment from your wages and forward it to the trustee.  Federal law prohibits employment discrimination on the basis of a bankruptcy filing.
