(8) Once my records are sealed, am I still required to disclose the criminal record/event on job applications?

No.  One of the primary benefits of sealing a criminal record concerns employment opportunities. Once sealed, “all proceedings recounted in the record” concerning your criminal event “are deemed never to have occurred.”  This means you can properly and lawfully answer “no” on a job application asking you whether you have been criminally convicted or even arrested in the past.
