If CA Labor code says an employer cannot ask someone

Customer Question

If CA Labor code says an employer cannot ask someone applying for a job about an arrest or detention that did not end in a conviction why is the state board allowed to publish on their site full details of the arrest which in fact broadcast this news to any employer since they all have to verify license status.
JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: Read above CA
JA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?
Customer: Please read the original question.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Yes I have never been fired disciplined or asked to take a test because I have exhibited aberrant behavior. I have been in positions of authority i.e. Director, charge and have been a nurse for over 40 yrs in 3 states and never had one issue.

It is hard to know the exact legal intent but presumably the law prohibits the employer from directly asking but they can still perform background checks on employees and some professions require that they do full criminal background checks i.e. nurses and teachers.
