Will a warrant show up on a pre employment background check? i have never had issues with the law… but a couple months ago i got a speeding ticket. i went to court and opted for driving school. between school finals, work and family i totally forgot and now i have a warrant. i want to fix this as quick as possible, even in my school days i never had detention… and having a warrant is killing me. I am in the process of getting hired at a new job… but im afraid that given the circumstances i wont pass a simple background check even though i have no convictions. i need a job to pay the ticket… but i have no idea what to do. Please help me.
I suggest you retain private counsel to quash the warrant and assist you with the underlying traffic ticket. Depending upon the strength of the background check, it may show up on your record; however, more importantly, if (and when) you come into contact with law enforcement (for any reason), you may be arrested on your warrant and sitting in jail while you await your court date won’t help with school or work. Best of luck to you.
