Torrance Expungements – What Employers Cannot Ask About

Torrance Expungements – What Employers Cannot Ask About

Table of Contents

Torrance Criminal Court lawyerCalifornia Labor Code states than an employer cannot ask someone applying for a job for information about an arrest or detention that did not end up in a conviction.  So, if you are applying for a job and you happen to have a conviction arising out of the Torrance Courthouse, they cannot ask about the arrest or detention.  Also, an employer cannot ask about a referral to or participation in any diversion program.  An employer is also not supposed to look for any record of arrest (from any source) that did not end in a conviction.  If this information comes to the employer’s attention anyway, the employer cannot use that record as a factor in hiring, promoting, or terminating that person.
