If one is convicted of Class C misdemeanor and plead guilty and paid fine. Does one need to report this to his employer or what if they find out later and he did not tell them when he was applying for job?
Or is this a small crime which is ignored or overlooked over for employment?
What if the job is requiring licensing from a state board?
For a class c, the employer probably cares more about whether you're honest on your application then if you were guilty. It especially does not look good if the conviction was for a theft. Those are two acts of dishonesty right there. If the company does background checks, you will be caught.
The employer should consider when the crime happened, its seriousness and relation to the job and whether the applicant has successfully worked in similar jobs to the one being applied to. However, many employers do not follow the law regarding criminal conviction history. Definitely do disclose it though because the employer will most likely do a background check which will reveal it, and even if they don't find it before you're employed, they could terminate you later for not disclosing it.
Come clean and disclose matter. Good luck.
