  • How does a bankruptcy affect getting hired?

    I had to file for bankruptcy about a year and a half ago. How much will this affect my chances of getting hired on to a dept.?

    Depending on the circs surrounding the bankruptcy, it could affect it. If you have a problem handling your finances, most agencies would frown on it. When you're involved in an arrest where much money is found - it could be perceived that the temptation to pocket some of the illicit funds would be greater for you than for someone without debt.

      As 1oldsarge said, a lot will depend on circumstances.

      Bankruptcy is a legal right. Absent any evidence of fraud, the mere fact that you have undergone bankruptcy cannot be the sole basis upon which employment is denied. Your BI may inquire into the circumstances that led up to the bankruptcy, including the examination of supporting court records regarding reported assets and liabilities at the time when the bankruptcy petition was filed. The whole purpose here is to assess your ability and willingness to effectively manage financial responsibilities, as a measure of your dependability and integrity.
