Re: Federal Employee Bankruptcy

Depending on your security clearance level, possibly. DCAA has clearance levels where a personal bankruptcy may compromise National Security. This should be spelled out in your employment contract. Title V, clearance processes and Federal contracting law applies.

If you are fired, you may have administrative remedies to pursue as well as Section 1863 violations thorugh EEOC since the right to declare bankruptcy is Constitutional. If your clearance is not renewed, all of this may be another matter.
