Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I type out an answer or reply.

I am interviewing for a position and was wondering if the pending charges will show up on the background check

.

Yes, they will show up unfortunately as pending charges. And it will show up as a pending felony charge is that is what they decided to initially charge the offense as.

.

I am very sorry that I don’t have better news, but please understand that I do have an ethical and professional obligation to provide customers with legally correct answers based on my knowledge and experience, even when I know the answer doesn’t make the customer happy...

Thank you. If I end up with a diversion will it show up while in diversion?

It will show up during the diversion program as a pending charge, but then with a successful completion, the charge is dismissed and the judge typically orders the record expunged so it is wiped clean from your record entirely so any employer wouldn't see it on a background check..

Hi. Since this happened at work, is my former employer allowed to disclose this to all current employees and to any new prospective employers?

Unfortunately, since this is publicly available information, your employer has no legal duty of confidentiality regarding this... So yes, they could legally disclose anything about this since it is public information..

.

It was my pleasure to work with you and help with your question. If you ever need me in the future, you can post a new question with "For Barrister" in the title and the JustAnswer employees will get it to me.

If you feel I have answered all your questions, I would very much appreciate a 5 star rating by clicking on the rating scale on your screen as that is the only way I receive credit for my work.
