If you recently were arrested on suspicion of DUI, you are probably wondering how it will affect your future. Remember that you are not the first person to get a DUI who is trying to get his or her life back on track.

What to Expect

If you were arrested but not convicted with a DUI, your employer does not have the legal right to ask about your arrest in most states. However, if you were convicted, questions about your DUI may be permitted.

Generally, you should remember that careers go on after DUIs, especially if it's your first conviction. People make mistakes. Employers will be more understanding if you are trying to repair your life and move on from the incident. Positive steps in the right direction may not erase your DUI, but they certainly help.
