My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: Louisiana
I was convicted for a misdemeanor in 2005 in California, jumped through all the hoops and completed my sentence. Just recently I applied for a job and disclosed my conviction on my application. I was in the process of being hired, took and passed the drug test and interview, but never got the call to come in for orientation for my first day of work? 2 weeks later I get my background check in the mail, which I believe that kept me from getting the job. If I disclosed on my application what they asked about being convicted for a misdemeanor or a felony and was honest, why would the employer waste mine and their time?
