A certificate of relief from civil disabilities creates a presumption of rehabilitation in regard to a criminal offense or offenses.
A certificate of relief from civil disabilities may relieve an eligible person of any forfeiture or disability, or remove any bar to employment, automatically imposed by law by reason of conviction of a crime.
A conviction for a crime specified in a Certificate of Relief from Disabilities shall not cause automatic forfeiture of any license, permit, employment or franchise, including the right to register for or vote at an election, or automatic forfeiture of any other right or privilege, held by the eligible offender and covered by the certificate.
A certificate of relief from disabilities does not authorize an individual with a criminal record to deny his conviction. For example, a job applicant cannot deny on an employment application that he/she has ever been convicted of a crime.
