You are considering hiring a new employee, and one of the things you're interested in is whether or not they have filed bankruptcy. Hello. I'm Robert Todd and I'm here to answer the question, How to Find Out if Someone Has Filed for Bankruptcy. Well, perhaps the first thing to do is to make that inquiry of the person that you're concerned with. In other words, give them an application for employment and ask them if they have filed for bankruptcy. If they are reluctant to give you an answer, then you may check with the bankruptcy court in the region or locale where they are located. Bankruptcy courts are not in every county in every state, but are regional, so you want to check to see what region they live in and what region the bankruptcy court would be located in. Then you can check the bankruptcy records, and you can determine whether they have a current, ongoing bankruptcy. If you think they may have filed for bankruptcy previously, you can check the bankruptcy's records. But you're going to have to know their correct name, social security number and date of birth. Failing that, if you run a credit report on them, and they have filed bankruptcy in the last ten years, it should show up. I'm Robert Todd, and thank you for watching.
