A: A "Non-Disclosable Dismissal" generally means that the record of the case will not be disclosed to the public or appear on most background checks. It is a way to protect your privacy and prevent the case from negatively impacting your reputation or employment prospects. However, it is important to note that there may be exceptions, such as certain types of background checks conducted by government agencies or law enforcement.
