Question: Does a first time criminal offense show up on a background check for employment?

Answer: If someone does a background check that asks for misdemeanors and felony convictions, and you were convicted of a misdemeanor or a felony, then it will show up. You should consider filing for an expungement which has benefits when it comes to employment. Feel free to contact me at 818-336-1384 or through if you would like to discuss in more detail.
