Good morning,There is no legal requirement in this situation that you disclose to your employer that you were arrested or the nature of the charge. While certain jobs may require that (e.g. law enforcement officers would generally have to disclose an arrest, persons in highly sensitive government jobs, etc), unless your employer has such a requirement in the workplace, such as in the employee handbook, it is not required.Do keep in mind, however, that arrests and court proceedings are public record, so if the employer was to ever conduct a background search (which would be unusual once you have been hired) it very likely would show up.
Was there anything I could clarify for you or additional information you needed?
