    Default Will Pending Felony Charges Show Up on a Background Check

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: NY

    Ive been charged/indicted with multiple felony charges involving theft. Im out on bail and I have secured well known high profile crime attorney. I'm now trying to get a normal job to get back on my feet. I had an interview this morning with a very large home improvement corporation that has 3 billion in sales and 9000+ employees. The position does not involve any money or assets being handled. I was told by my interviewer that a background check will be required and I'm curious to know if my pending charges will show up. I did call a background check company called AAA and they said in general, pending cases are not released to companies when a check is performed. Does anyone have any insight on this?

    We have no more insight than the background check company would - that is, we can only tell you that generally, pending charges do not show up.

    We can't make any assurances, nor can we make specific commentary for any individual company.

    I know, I'm not holding anyone accountable for my future here, I was just posting to get a general idea.

    If the background check is based upon a private database, updated periodically, then it's possible that the charges won't appear. If it's the policy of the background check company to only release information about convictions, then I would expect them to follow their policy. But if the employer runs your record with the state, I would expect the abstract to show the pending charges.
