Bankrupcty no longer on my Bureau

May 29th, 2008 by Questions

My bankruptcy record has finally been purged from my credit bureau. Am I obliged to answer `yes` if asked whether I declared bankruptcy on an employment application? Can the prospective employer find out?

If they ask the question you are obligated to answer truthfully. Failure to answer truthfully will likkely cause greater difficulties during the job applicaiton process. As for the employer finding out, a bankruptcy is a matter of public record. So a simple search through the Superintendent of Bankruptcy’s office is all that is needed to verify the presence or absence of a bankruptcy and this is a record that is not purged like the credit bureau.
