If you have a criminal record or even if you have been fingerprinted by the police and the charges were later withdrawn, dismissed, stayed, peace bond, absolute or conditional discharged, it can affect your ability to get bonded for employment.
Most employers are doing criminal background checks and part of the reason they are doing this is because they want to know if you are bondable.
Employers require bonding for most employees in fields that require handling materials which is a really broad category.
Once a pardon or record suspension is granted or a file destruction is completed, your criminal record will no longer show up on a criminal background check and you will be safe to get bonded. You no longer have to worry that your application will be refused because of an old criminal charge.
Here is an email we recently received from a person we helped to obtain a file destruction for a common assault charge that was conditionally discharged:
“I have recieved my official document that my photographs and fingerprints have been destroyed, and I’m writing to you tell you how wonderful it feels to have my file destruction completed.”
“I have many plans now that I am bondable. Recently, I have even returned to school, and I am studying math, biology, and chemistry. In the future I hope to go to college and eventually work as a health inspector.”
