Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. Please be patient as I may need to research for you, and it also takes time to compose and type a reply.

Ask Your Own Employment Law Question

Yes. Government can ask about all your convictions, even those that were later expunged. They can also see what private employers cannot, so if you don't give them the information they ask for, they will know that you are are not telling the truth.

The rule of thumb with a government employer on any level is to give them everything they ask for. You can always find a place on the application to note that the conviction was expunged.
