DUI & Employment Background Checks: What You Should Know


DUI and Employment

When applying for a job, most companies require their potential employees submit to an employment background check in order to determine whether you have a criminal past. Unfortunately, if you have bene convicted of a DUI, you cannot escape this conviction even if you have paid your fines or served your sentence. While employers are in their full rights to request a background check, this can be an incredibly debilitating step in the employment process--especially if the conviction is long behind you.

According to California state laws, there are specific circumstances which may allow you to expunge your record. Expungement is essentially erasing your DUI from public record, it is available to those who have completed probation, paid all fines and restitution, and are not facing or serving for any other criminal charges. This process can get quite complicated, which is why it is essential to enlist in the help of our Santa Rosa DUI attorney.
