The simple answer is — nothing. Bankruptcy
and proposals should not affect your employment. In fact, you cannot be fired simply because
you filed an assignment in bankruptcy or a proposal. If you are bonded, there may be
restrictions from the bonding company if your are in bankruptcy, but this applies to
very few people. The only reason for a trustee to contact your
employer would be if your wages were being garnisheed. The trustee will notify your payroll
department as soon as your bankruptcy or proposal is official. After this date, no further deductions
can be taken from your wages, regardless of a garnishment order from the court. If
your payroll person is uncomfortable stopping the deductions, ask your Trustee to give him
or her a call.
