I know this is a bit vague, but I am reticent about too much personal information. I am working at a state agency and they have a new policy, and i have to get another background check. My institution was made aware of the summary offenses but not my immediate superiors. I'm worried that I will have to disclose this embarrassing information. Also, the offense is not sexual, which is what they are most concerned with, but I am worried it will impact me negatively. I plan to get them expunged but that is 2 years away.
I guess I was just wondering, from your experience, how much this will affect my employment. My background did not show up in the state police files.
