I shoplifted from Kohls when I was in high school. No police were called, I got no letter in the mail, or anything. I remember filling out a form, but don't remember what was on it. I am now a college grad looking for a part time job. This did not cross my mind as I applied to Kohls and got the job. After doing a background check, they told me that because of that incident, I was no longer eligible for hire. Is that really on my record? Or is it just a Kohls thing. It was a stupid mistake when I was a kid and I don't want it to effect me forever.
This should not be anything that should come up on a criminal background check . I would strongly urge you to talk to a lawyer to look into
