Is there a difference between Protection Order and Restraining orders in NY? Do they appear in background checks for employment purposes?
In New York we use Orders of Protection, which generally serve the same function and purpose as what some states refer to as a Restraining Order. Whether they will appear in a background check conducted by a potential employer will depend on the type of job sought and the protocols used in that industry in conducting background checks (I.e. what sources they normally check in that industry). I generally advise my clients to assume that they will turn up in such an investigation.
