For those that are working going bankrupt cannot be the cause of them getting terminated from their employment. It doesn’t mean that if an employer wants to really get rid of an employee that has gone bankrupt that they won’t look for other reasons to blame the termination on. In many cases however, employers see bankruptcy as a positive step.
