Almost every employer with a significant number of employees has had workers involved in a Chapter 13 case.  It very rarely causes a problem.  In fact, it is illegal for a private employer to discriminate against an employee because he or she filed a bankruptcy case.  In the rare situation where an employer terminates or otherwise discriminates against an employee because of a bankruptcy filing, the bankruptcy attorney can file an action in the bankruptcy court for reinstatement and damages.  Frankly, though, it's almost never necessary.

To be sure your rights are fully protected, make sure you hire an experienced bankruptcy lawyer.  Experience matters!
