While many potential employers cannot get direct access to your juvenile record, they may still ask you about juvenile arrests or adjudications that you haven't expunged yet. Employers are also not prevented from seeking other sources of information to confirm arrests or adjudications, even when they cannot get access to the juvenile record directly.
However, employers may not ask about expunged juvenile arrests or adjudications, and if asked, an individual may legally respond as if the events never occurred.
Effective January 1, 2018, an agency will not be able to deny your application for a professional license if the decision is based only on the fact that you have a juvenile record.
The rules for reporting a juvenile record are different from reporting an adult criminal record.
