Drug Crimes FAQs

Can employers view my criminal record?

Present and future employers can view your arrest record

 

People tend to think, “I plead guilty, they told me it wasn’t even a crime. They told me my record was sealed.” New York is an employment-at-will state, which means that employers can just say, “We decided we wanted somebody else,” and fire you. Most people don’t realize the ramifications of what they thought was a simple marijuana possession. 

 

If you’re doing poorly and still addicted, you may be able to seal your arrest record when faced with a new arrest or new charge. However, If you are doing well, meaning you have overcome your addiction and you had older drug crimes, you’re somewhat out-of-luck.
