Under normal circumstances, unless your employer is a creditor, your employer will not know that you have filed bankruptcy. However, there is a growing trend in Bankruptcy Courts to require wage withholding to fund the Chapter 13 Plan. This means that your employer may receive an order from the Bankruptcy Court to deduct your Chapter 13 payment from your check and send it directly to the Chapter 13 trustee. Consult your attorney about local procedure.
