If someone has been arrested but not convicted does it come up as a flag in back ground check for getting a job

Good evening. The background check would likely reveal that there is an open case pending with the court. The arrest itself may even be revealed, depending on how in depth / detailed the background check is. In a situation like this, the employer may likely tell the potential employee, that they will wait to make a decision on the hiring, until the case is resolve. In addition, the charge itself does effect the decision to hire, since if it is a crime of moral turpitude, the employer may not want to have a person working there based upon the accusation alone.

The case is closed and disposed. It did not go to trial either.
When you say closed and disposed of, was it dismissed or did the defendant take a plea?

It was dismissed without any charges
The arrest may still be seen, which is why it would be in the best interest of this person to have it expunged, so the general public would not be able to view it.
