Legal Question in Employment Law in Florida
I am applying for a job and on the application it asks, "Have you ever been convicted of a criminal offense, been placed on probation, been the subject of a deferred adjudication proceeding, or been subject to a criminal penalty?" but also says, "Information regarding referral to and participation in any pretrial or post-trial diversion program need not be disclosed." I have gone through diversion once and had the case dismissed. I am currently going through diversion again to get another charge dismissed. Do I still need to check yes and explain even though i have never been convicted of anything or can I simply put no?

sounds like the question only asks for adjudication or charges that have not been subject to diversion. That is my read of it.
