The completion of sentence imposed by the court is no ground to get back the services which were terminated. Your husband can get his job back only and only if he is held not guilty by the highest court.

to get employment in government service is out of the question, he will not get it. Private companies might hire him, provided if he does not reveal his conviction, but if a verification is done they will definitely know about it, virtually his chances of getting employment both govt and private post serving his sentence is zero.

Hello,
1) There is no law that says that a convict after having served the sentence can not be employed again provided he or she is qualified and successfully completes the eligibility tests or criteria.

2) There is a usual disclosure clause which asks if the candidate was ever convicted and if convicted the details are to be provided.The disclosure can place him at a disadvantage in the selection criteria. However his seeking right to sek and find employment is not taken away by law.

On conviction by a trial court and the appeals being dismissed confirming the trial court judgement, he might have been terminated by the employer. 
This will render him not eligible for a government employment in future for a certain period.
However there is no bar in he getting an employment in private sector. 
He can try  for a job in the private sector as per his qualification and experience.
