Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello. My name is***** will be happy to answer your question.I am sorry to hear about this unfortunate situation.
Unfortunately, if a person is charged with a crime and later acquitted at trial by jury, the record of the arrest and criminal charges will remain at the local state level and also with the FBI database, but the disposition of the case would show as "acquittal", so there is no criminal conviction and such record should not be held against the person, however, some employers at their discretion can legally choose not to hire someone, who was simply arrested and/or charged with a crime and wasn't convicted and there is nothing illegal about such practice.
I am very sorry to provide you with this bad news, but please understand that I do have professional obligation to provide JustAnswer.com customers with correct answers, even when answer is not favorable to the customer.
I wish you the best of luck and God bless you!
