DUI charges can make it hard to keep your job

You had a little too much to drink at the office party. You have to deal with the knowledge that you acted out of character at the party. You decided to drive home from the party and on the way there, you were pulled over. Now, you have to deal with a drunk driving charge. This charge can have a big impact on every aspect of your life, including your employment.

There are some workers who are going to have a bigger impact on their employment because of a drunk driving charge. People who drive as part of their job duties will likely be unable to continue their job. This is because many of the insurance companies that deal with commercial businesses won’t cover workers who have DUI charges pending or DUI convictions.

We know that you might not be able to handle losing your job. You won’t have an income and you likely won’t be able to support yourself if you aren’t able to keep your current employment. The issue with the drunk driving charge and your job doesn’t end with the insurance and inability to drive issues. Instead, you could also face trouble at work because of the court dates and obligations that you have because of the case.

Many employers can’t afford to keep giving you time off of work. The more time you miss, the more likely your job is in jeopardy. We can go over the possible ways you can get the case resolved so that you might be able to get the case resolved as quickly as possible.
