character reference letters


On the checklist of required documents, I see nothing about character reference letters. But I think they could be beneficial to the application process. Any thoughts or experiences with this? And would you recommend letters from family or friends? Or employer? also, has anyone had employment repercussions after requesting letter from employer?
Btw, my criminal record is from 1986. And I've had same employer for 25+ years. I don't know if he is aware of my past, am hesitant to tell him, but also feel he would write me and excellent reference letter. Really torn on what to do...
Thanks in advance
