Hello, when my son...

Hello, when my son was 16 he was given a 5150 for suicide attempt. He is now 25 and going to college. This is something that happened when he was young and still developing. The question is does he need to tell prospective employers about this past including law enforcement and military?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

California

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

He was in a hospital for a 3 day period

First and foremost being placed on a 5150/5250 hold pursuant to Cal. Welf. & Inst. Code sections 5150 and 5250 is not considered an arrest. Rather, it is simply a hold to provide assessment, evaluation, and crisis intervention as a result of a mental disorder. As a 5150 hold is not considered an arrest, it will not appear on a criminal record background check, as this information is protected by an individual’s right to privacy pursuant to Cal. Welf. & Inst. Code section 5328. There are certain exceptions within Cal. Welf. & Inst. Code section 5328 relating to the disclosure of a 5150 hold.

If (and only if) you are completely satisfied that your question is answered, please remember to leave a favorable rating (click 5 stars in the rating section on this page). It is the only way that I am credited by JustAnswer for answering your question.

There is no additional charge to you for rating me favorably.

You mentioned exceptions can apply. Can you explain what those might be

It has to do with court ordered disclosures and restoration of firearm purchase rights. Not really applicable to your son's situation.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
