Unfortunately there is rarely a simple answer when it comes to whether a DUI arrest or conviction will lead to termination of employment. Some employer’s are more lenient while others are extremely strict about DUI arrests. Each and every employer is different and may have preexisting rules and regulations pertaining to an employee’s arrest or conviction record.
It is important to understand that a DUI arrest is not the same as a DUI conviction. When you are initially arrested for a DUI, you will likely be booked and fingerprinted at the police station. This booking process creates what is known as an “arrest record.”
On the other hand, a criminal conviction is not entered until the defendant either pleads guilty or is found guilty in criminal court. It is best to speak with your DUI defense lawyer to discuss all the potential consequences of a DUI arrest and/or conviction.
In many cases employers do not find out about a DUI arrest. In fact, in some of our cases employers never find out about a DUI conviction. It is almost never a good idea to notify your employer about the fact that you have been arrested for a DUI. However, before making any decision as to how to handle your DUI or whether to notify your employer you should confer with the DUI defense lawyers at Wallin and Klarich.
