DUIs & Employment Background Checks
Get a Skilled Orange County DUI Attorney on Your Side
DUI convictions are not only a blow to your driving privileges but can
affect other areas of your life as well. For a DUI in California, you
could also find it harder to find a job if your potential employer conducts
a background check which reveals your DUI conviction. If you are worried
a DUI could be holding you back, or you are facing
DUI charges, speak with an Orange County DUI attorney right away.

Don't Let a DUI Ruin Your Life
California employers can ask potential employees about DUI convictions,
but not arrests. If an employer asks about criminal convictions, you are
required to mention any DUI conviction within the last 10 years.
Employers can conduct backgrounds checks which glean information from:
- Driving records
- Court records
- Vehicle registration
- Interviews with previous neighbors or employers
With the help of our Orange County DUI attorney, you may be able to obtain
a certificate of rehabilitation from court which states you are rehabilitated
and no longer in danger of committing further DUIs. You must meet certain
residency criteria and fulfill the terms of your DUI probation and receive
a dismissal or expungement before being granted a certificate.
Let Our Orange County DUI Firm Fight for Your Future
In general, it is best to tell the truth during an interview: while employers
may overlook a DUI offense if you admit it, being caught in a lie will
almost always remove an applicant from any job consideration. For DUI
convictions, you should speak with our firm about the possibility of having
your conviction expunged.
