Terminated after filing a proposal

December 6th, 2010 by Questions

In BC can an employer fire you after you file a consumer proposal? Employee at a bank was fired after she did a proposal instead of filing for bankruptcy because her employer told her she would lose her job if she filed for bankruptcy.

You need to speak to a labour lawyer, not a trustee. The Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act contains specific provisions that prohibit this kind of thing, BUT a trustee can’t help you get the job back (or can’t sue them for you). Call a labour lawyer and ask them what kind of case this person has.
