    Default Can't Get a Job Due to Arrest Record

    My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: Georgia

    I am a registered nurse, I should be able to get a job without a problem; however, I got arrested with 12 felonies of commercial gambling, I got people ready to hire me but once they run a background check it's a no go. I have tried all types of jobs from nursing, construction, DISH rejected me and told me that was why. Am I not innocent until proven guilty? What kind of recourse do I have? How should I go about getting a job? Just looking for help on how to get back in work force. Thanks a lot.

    Georgia law permits prospective employers to ask about arrests not leading to conviction that have not been sealed or expunged, and to consider them when making employment decisions. If your pretrial release permits it, you may consider looking for work in a different state.

    Thanks a lot, I guess I need to actually become a criminal to survive now. I guess that's how they look at it.

    If you wish to commit crimes and end up looking at even more charges and potential prison time, it's your life. Don't expect a pity party.
