Being charged for driving under the influence, or, in other words, receiving a DUI, is understandably frustrating, stressful, and scary. A person facing a possible DUI probably wonders whether or not their employment is put at risk after receiving a DUI.
So, are you at risk of losing your job after being charged with a DUI? The short answer is yes. The first and most probable way that a DUI can affect your employment opportunities, is by being disclosed during a job interview or on a job application.
While it may be tempting to keep a DUI hidden from your employer or potential employers, it’s illegal not to disclose a DUI.
