Criminal charges can make various aspects of life challenging, but things can become even more complex if you're convicted. One area that's particularly difficult for people to handle is the way that it can affect their employment.
Many employers do criminal background checks before they hire employees. For some, any criminal conviction is an automatic disqualifier. This isn't always the case, and some employers prefer to consider the circumstances of the criminal conviction before they lose someone who can be a valuable asset to the company.
