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.
