The Importance of Record Sealing and Expunging
If an employer is deciding for a job between two equally eligible candidates, the decision to choose one over the other could be due to factors such as a criminal background. With countless people out of work at the moment and searching for new prospects, there could be more candidates vying for the same position, emphasizing the value of sealing or expunging one's record.
Miami, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/21/2020 -- The situation here is hypothetical. A law firm is searching for someone to serve as a paralegal. The firm receives a pair of applications, each from different applicants and with excellent professional experience and expertise. One of the applicants had been arrested with a controlled substance for speeding or driving. Although the firm may disregard the arrest, another employer may find a drug charge a risk they are not willing to take.
Under difficult circumstances, the last thing a person wants is to disrupt efforts to get employment because of their background. To learn more about getting a record potentially sealed and/or expunged, contact Hochman & Goldin law firm today.
