My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: California
Hi, I am recently in the hiring process at a local hospital for a nursing job and am worried about not passing the background check. Two and a half years ago I was falsely arrested on a DV charge. I hired a lawyer and submitted evidence to the courts proving my innocence. The charge was dismissed by the DA during pre trial. I was never convicted of any charges, never had any probation or classes to attend. Despite all this I was still able to get my nursing license a year later and work in a nursing home as a nurse. Now I'm worried I won't pass "hospital" standards. Assuming it comes up, can they deny me employment based on a dismissed case? Will they be able to tell that it was never a conviction vs. a dismissal via a diversion program? Please help!
