My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: Illinois
Started a new position recently and a background check was conducted after employment began. Upon receipt of the results, charges, NOT convicted of anything, came back on the report. Anything that was on there HAS been expunged. My attorney has sent a letter to the Director of HR informing them of this and that he's investigating why it returned with anything on my record. HR also asked if they could call my attorney and my attorney spoke to them, smoothing out what everything means and that it should not be there.
The HR Director does not want to have to inform anyone else, i.e my boss, about this but wants to make sure they are not obligated by law to inform my boss. The accusations, "charges", are non-violent and do not directly relate to my position, financial/accounting industry. The application asked if I had ever been CONVICTED of a crime, not charged.
My question is, where can I find information to present to them stating they are not obligated by law to inform my boss? And that this can be kept between us. As I was asked to please present this to ease their conscious and not jeopardize her job. Thank you in advance for you assistance.
PLEASE, help! So I can show evidence that no further action need be taken to my boss.
