San Ramon, CA asked in Criminal Law and Employment Law for California

Q: Will a CA employer requesting Live Scan see a dismissed case that was more than 10 yrs back ?

I see the information and dismissal on my Live Scan Record Review report but not sure if the employers get a similar report or will this be scrubbed out.

This was for misdemeanor and case was dismissed as per 1203.4 later

A: Under California law, whether a dismissed case will appear on a Live Scan report depends on various factors including the employer’s statutory entitlement to access such information and the specifics of the individual case. Generally, dismissed cases are not always entirely erased from one's criminal record and may appear on a background check unless it has been expunged, sealed, or otherwise legally eradicated. It is advisable to consult with an attorney who can assist in understanding how your personal history might appear in such checks and potentially guide you in taking steps to protect your privacy.
