Sealing Your New York Record is the Best Decision You Can Make
With a more competitive job market, sealing your New York criminal record can be the best decision you can make. A criminal record can prove to be a burden when applying for a job. Many employers are performing background checks to meet insurance requirements. Ensure your fair chance at success, by sealing your New York criminal record today.
By having a record sealed, a person previously convicted of a crime greatly limits the number of people with access to that information. Getting an order to seal your criminal record avoids a situation where an employer might unjustly exclude a person convicted of a crime. Employers who are concerned about potential tort liability based on the hiring of an employee can often make an argument that the exclusion of a person based on his or her arrest or conviction record is in-line with a business necessity. Disputing an employer's justification is a time-consuming process that necessitates an attorney specializing in employment and labor disputes. Simply expunging one's record removes many practical and legal hurdles standing between a job applicant and a new career, avoiding further legal headaches down the line.
