I work for my local council and my job requires police vetting. if I become bankrupt will I lose this job?
No, unless it is specifically mentioned in your employment contract, which we doubt. We have taken countless council workers through bankruptcy and have never had a problem. Bankruptcy is a civil procedure, not a criminal one. Therefore, unless your contract specifies that you have to disclose personal financial circumstances, don’t tell anyone … bankruptcy is only advertised in the London Gazette and is no longer printed in the local press.
