Dear colleague,
Almost all companies are likely not to consider you for a job. However , depending on the minor or major criminal offence , there could be exceptions which is rarest of rare possibility.

First solve and clear your open criminal case and then apply for job.
Dear member,
Yes, your concern is understandable. While doing a background check, companies might check whether any criminal case is pending against a candidate and may decide whether to hire him/her or not.
However, this exposes the double standards of Indian business owners or HR professionals. A news report says that "43% of newly-elected Lok Sabha MPs face criminal charges". The average electorate does not have qualms in electing a criminal and allow him/her to become a lawmaker. They get carried away by the top leader and do not mind criminals to handle legislative matters of our country.
Some of the elected MPs have become union ministers also. However, when it comes to selecting a job candidate the legal dictum that "nobody is guilty unless proved" goes silent.
Nobody tells a candidate of a political party to get cleared the criminal cases against him then contest the elections but the advice is reserved or a job candidate to do so. One should have lofty standards but one should not be selective in applying them.
Anyway, keep on applying for the job. Some time luck might favour you and you may not become a victim of the pretentious grandstanding.

What do you mean by criminal open case? What are the offences alleged? What is the present stage of the matter? Does the offences alleged involve allegations as to moral turpitude?
