Hello and thank you for using our service. My name isXXXXX and I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help you. Believe me that I will try my best to give you a solution if one exists, but sometimes the law does not have a good one.
Sorry, looks like your question ended up in the immigration law forum. I will Opt Out and transfer you to the correct forum.
It is not known whether the employer is aware of the complaint. It is possible that it could be publicly available. However, the complaint has been dismissed with prejudice and ordered sealed by the judge more than 10 years ago.
The question is quite general - "Have you ever been party to a civil action"
Would such a complaint require a response? Thanks.
Are you there?
Thank you. That is very helpful.
For further clarification, the civil complaint was not filed in california, but rather another US state.
Information relating to the civil complaint may potentially be available via the internet.
If, in the course of a background check, such information were to be revealed through a google search, would the agency performing the check still be able to report it to the employer, notwithstanding that it is older than 10 years?
Thanks! Please respond ASAP. Will leave best rating. Thanks.
