Do I have to tell my work of my arrest?

by Dec 19, 2012Education

After the initial shock of an arrest wears off, many questions begin running through your head. One question you might have is, “Do I have to tell my work about my arrest?” Generally the answer is no. However, if you have signed an employment contract with your work, you may have agreed to notify them of any arrests or convictions. If you have agreed to these terms, and fail to notify, that may be ground for termination.

It is important to note that most employees are “at will” employees and have not signed a contract requiring them to advise work of arrest or convictions. Whether you are an at will employee or under a contract it might be a good idea to be upfront about the situation to remain in good standings with your employer.
