Question: I received an expungement for my prior Utah criminal convictions. How do I answer employment applications who ask about expunged convictions?
Answer: A new Utah law as of 2023 allows you to generally answer an employment application regarding prior expunged criminal convictions as if it never happened.
An unexpunged criminal record in Utah is generally visible to federal and state law enforcement if they really want to see it. Most employers or landlords don’t understand the intricacies of Utah law that allow you to deny that you were ever convicted.
