I am currently on probation with the HYTA program in Michigan for a felony charge. I have received an offer for full time employment on the west coast. They have asked me whether or not I have been charged with a felony. How should I answer this?
I know that they can't find out about any conviction b/c of the pre-trial diversion program, but what about charges? I have checked my record at both the state police and the local courthouse, and nothing shows up.
My final concern is that there was a newspaper article detailing the charges. Is there any chance that an employer would find out about this during a background check, or do you consider it highly unlikely? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
