My question involves criminal law for the state of: New York
I am currently on parole and have applied for a job. I was very honest with them about my history and that I'm on parole, etc. No problem on their end - they are interested in hiring me. They have asked for my references, which I submitted; however, only one of my references is aware that I was incarcerated. The others, which are from jobs I had over 10 years ago are NOT aware, and I would prefer they didn't know, although I know it's easy enough to find out, if you are looking.
My question is, can this potential employer, while speaking with my references, volunteer the information that I was incarcerated?
(I wasn't sure if I should post this in the Employment and Labor Law section or here, so I started here.)
Thanks in advance for your help.
