    What is the felony?
    Not everything that makes you mad, sad or uncomfortable is legally actionable.

    I am not now nor ever was an attorney.

        It was legal & they had every right not to hire you due to a pending felony. You might have trouble getting a job but you will just have to keep trying. However, you do need to answer all questions on the employment application truthfully. They will find out the info anyway during a background check.

          I wasn't asking to be cute.

          I certainly wouldn't hire anyone suspected of theft to a managerial position on the off chance they were innocent.

            Sorry but employers are not courts of law and they do not have the benefit of weighting evidence and hearing testimony to determine whether or not you are guilty or not. The courts have enough difficulty doing this. I'd suggest working with an attorney to get the case resolved as quickly as possible and applying for non-retail jobs in the meantime.
            I post with the full knowledge and support of my employer, though the opinions rendered are my own and not necessarily representative of their position. In other words, I'm a free agent.
