My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: District of Columbia
Hello. I was offered a position with a company in DC, a television news station. During the process I informed my potential boss of a misdemeanor conviction (May 2015) and that I have nothing else in my background.
I was able to continue through the candidacy and the position was offered.
Before the background check was complete I was encouraged to finish all other paperwork including tax info. Once the background check came back with the conviction, I was then terminated from the company. Not offer rescinded but fired. Is this legal?
Please feel free to ask me questions.
