Employer asking about past crimes, charges
Ask a Lawyerwhat's this?
QuestionCountry: United States of America
State: All States/Provinces
I am filling out employment papers for a job I was recently hired for and it asks if I have ever been charged for any federal, state, county, or municipal laws. I was arrested once for violating a own ordinance of Open container in a public place. Is this something that I need to reveal for this question?
AnswerIf there is a criminal record yes; you may call the DA or court involved to see if it was put or kept on the record (if you do not know)-
