DUI & Employment Background Checks
Be Prepared with DUI Attorney’s Help
DUI convictions are not only a blow to your driving privileges, but they can also affect other areas of your life as well.

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 that glean information from:
- Driving records
- Court records
- Vehicle registration
- Interviews with previous neighbors or employers
With the help of your attorney, you may be able to obtain a certificate of rehabilitation from court that 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. Attorney Goodman can explain the expectations to you, helping ensure that you are on the right track to getting the certificate of rehabilitation, so your DUI conviction can stop being such a large burden on your life.
