Dui Convictions Can Ruin Careers
DUI CONVICTIONS CAN RUIN CAREERS
Think a misdemeanor DUI arrest isn't serious? Think again! For persons already employed and those seeking new jobs, being convicted for a DUI arrest can cause career chaos!
Florida has tough DUI laws. If pleading no contest or guilty to DUI charges, or when found guilty after trial, DUI defendants receive permanent blemishes on criminal records, even when no jail time is imposed. Unlike findings of guilt administered in many other types of criminal offenses, DUI convictions can never be sealed. That's why it's wise to consult with an experienced DUI defense attorney about legal strategies which may lead to the avoidance of criminal convictions.EMPLOYERS FEAR DUI CONVICTIONS
People with career goals mistakenly underestimate the seriousness of DUI arrests. Fearing expensive jury awards, insurance companies often advise business clients to verify that job applicants and even current employees don't have DUI convictions.
Pre-employment criminal background checks, once given primarily to traveling salespersons and truck drivers, are now often conducted on persons applying for work positions not requiring any on-the-job driving. With increasing frequency, employers are refusing to extend job offers to applicants having even just one or an old DUI conviction and are firing longstanding employees convicted of off-the-job DUI offenses. DUI convictions can also have consequences when seeking acceptance into college, the military or admission into professions having licensing requirements. A DUI conviction can jeopardize your current job and future career!
