Changes the long title.
Amends GS 15A-153(c), providing that an employer or educational institution will not require an applicant for employment or admission to disclose information concerning any arrest, criminal charge, or criminal conviction of the applicant that has been expunged. Also provides that they cannot knowingly or willingly inquire about that which they know has been expunged. Provides that an applicant need not, in answer to any question concerning any arrest or criminal charge that has not resulted in a conviction, include information or refer to any arrests, charges, or convictions that have been expunged (previously, required an employer or educational institution that requested disclosure of information concerning any arrest, criminal charge, or criminal conviction of the applicant to first advise the applicant of law allowing the applicant to not refer to any expunged arrest, charge, or conviction).
