If you have been convicted of a crime, you may wonder if you will be able to find employment. Employers are becoming increasingly concerned about knowing whether applicants have criminal records. Part of this concern stems from large jury verdicts that have been rendered against employers for negligently hiring people with criminal histories who subsequently caused harm to others while on the job. Another concern for employers relates to whether they will have to disclose an employee's criminal conviction to others. For example, if a company is trying to raise capital, it may need to make certain disclosures to a bank. Will the company have to disclose that an employee has a criminal conviction for embezzlement or money laundering?
The laws about which criminal records an employer must or may access, what an employer may ask a potential employee about his or her criminal record and what the job applicant must reveal vary widely from state to state. If you have a criminal record and are looking for a job, an attorney knowledgeable in criminal law at Milazo Law in Franklin, Tennessee, can help ensure that you go into the job search fully informed of your rights.
