An expungement allows the court record to reflect a “dismissal” of the case. Second, on many jobs applications, you are allowed to answer that you have not been convicted of any crimes. There are limits to this benefit, so verify if you are allowed to answer this way.
For instance, if you are applying for a government job or a job, which requires a government issued license, certification, or permit, or a job that requires a security clearance, the conviction will still be uncovered, even if it has been expunged. So, on the job application, you should disclose the conviction, but also, the expungement.
To find out if you are eligible for an expungement or if you would need to disclose a previously expunged charge on a job application, please contact our office for assistance.
