I currently reside in the state of Georgia and I was recently denied employment on the basis of a Consumer report. The report was conducted by Peoplewise reporting agency. I was covicted of a misdemeanor in June of 2000. I was given one year probation and allowed the first offender plea. After the completion of my probation in June of 2001, I was then exonerated of all criminal charges and mail a letter stating that I can not be denied employment based of this charge. When contacted by the would be employer, they stated that I was denied employment solely on this basis and falsifying information on the application. The application read "HAve you ever been convicted of a misdemeanor or do you have any pending court cases." Fortunately, I do not have any pending cases and because I was exonerated from all charges involving the previous case I do not have any convictions. Can this happen?
