背景调查可以看到密封的记录吗?

如果您的犯罪记录已被封存或清除,您可能想知道犯罪背景调查 是否能够发现相关记录的详细信息。背景调查可以看到密封的记录吗?那些被清除掉的罪行呢?

在我们进一步讨论之前,让我们区分密封记录和删除记录。在这两种情况下,您都必须请求法院重新考虑您的部分或全部犯罪记录。在这两种情况下,结果都是提高您找到工作、继续接受教育、签署租约或以其他方式继续生活的能力。换句话说,目标是使这些记录不会出现在犯罪背景调查中。

清除案件中的犯罪记录处理方式与记录被密封的案件的处理方式有所不同。“Expunge”的意思是“擦除”,这基本上是法院批准删除申请时发生的情况。已删除的犯罪记录将被删除和销毁,直至相关法院或存储库中没有这些记录的剩余文件。密封记录仍然“存在”,但不会在背景调查中报告。它们可以通过法院命令访问,但不再是公共记录的一部分。

由于这些因素,在特定法院查找记录的背景调查不应能够检索密封或删除的记录。在许多州,  雇主根据已删除或封存的记录做出招聘决定实际上是非法的。由于许多法院和机构不会主动通知公众删除记录,一个人可能会获得删除或封存记录的法院命令,但犯罪记录数据库公司可能永远不会收到该命令,而这些公司是许多人的犯罪记录信息来源。美国的背景审查公司之一。 

如果雇主、学校或房东使用这些来源,他们可能会发现应该被封存或删除的犯罪记录。但是,雇主必须向他们的候选人提供通知,告知他们打算对他们通过这种方式找到的记录做出不利决定,并让候选人能够对这些记录提出异议。

好消息是,有一种方法可以确保密封的记录保持密封状态,并确保已删除的记录保持删除状态。在 GOOHO.CN,我们与一个名为继续正义基金会的组织建立了合作伙伴关系。如果您最近成功申请封存或删除过去的指控或定罪, 我们可以帮助您 从数百个数据库和来源中删除该犯罪记录。


will be able to uncover details of the record(s) in question. Can a background check see sealed records? What about crimes that have been wiped out by expungement?

Before we go any further, let’s make a distinction between sealed records and expunged records. In both cases, you must petition the court to reconsider part or all of your criminal record. In both cases, the outcome is to improve your ability to get a job, continue your education, sign a lease, or otherwise move on with your life. The goal, in other words, is to make it so those records don’t show up on a criminal background check.

There is a difference in how criminal records are handled in expungement cases versus cases in which the records are sealed. “Expunge” means “to erase,” which is essentially what happens when the court grants a petition for expungement. Criminal records that have been expunged are deleted and destroyed, to the point at which there is no remaining file of those records at relevant courts or repositories. Sealed records still “exist” but are not reported on background checks. They can be accessed by court order but are no longer part of the public record.

Due to these factors, a background check that looks for records at a specific court house, should not be able to retrieve sealed or expunged records. In many states, it is actually illegal for employers to make hiring decisions based on records that have been expunged or sealed. Since many courts and agencies do NOT proactively inform the public of expungements, a person may obtain a court order expunging or sealing a record but that order may never be received by the criminal record database companies, who are a source of criminal record information to many of the background screening companies in the US. 

If an employer, school, or landlord is using these sources, they may find a criminal record that is supposed to be sealed or expunged. Employers, however, are required to provide their candidates notice of their intent to make an adverse decision on records they find this way and give the candidate the ability to dispute such records.

The good news is that there is a way to ensure that sealed records stay sealed and expunged records stay expunged. At backgroundchecks.com, we have a partnership with an organization called The Foundation for Continuing Justice. If you have recently petitioned successfully to have a past charge or conviction sealed or expunged, we can help you get that criminal record removed from hundreds of databases and sources.
