    Default Who Can See My Record if it's Expunged

    My question involves criminal records for the state of: Texas

    Hi, I am applying for a government job and I had a previous record in 1999 that was expunged last year. Do I need to let them know about it and will they be able to find it during my background check?

    It depends upon the employer and the question asked. We don't have the information to answer; ask the HR department for the government agency.

    Yes, when you apply for a federal govt job they see everything even if it was expunged.

    Since they will be able to see my previous records, do I answer “yes” or ”no” on my application asking if I have been arrested or charged of a crime?

    C'mon. Do you really think, KNOWING that they will be able to see the records, that "no" is going to be an acceptable response?

    You have to see how the question is worded on the application & answer accordingly/truthfully.
