Disclosure of a felony

If I petition the court for a non
disclosure of a recent felony conviction.
Does that mean future employers can’t

Most employers will not be able to see it.  Private sector employers will not be able to possess or view the information related to the conviction.  However, some governmental agency employers may still be authorized to view the conviction if authorized by statute.
