Can you get a job after getting convicted of a #DUI in #Tampa  
How Does a Tampa DUI Charge Affect You Getting a Job?

The job market today is not that great for anyone, whoever you are, so damaging your background in even a small way can affect the way employers look at you. The effects of a DUI charge can be life changing and can have an effect on your future job prospects as well as your present job, too.

In Tampa, Florida, while a DUI is normally a misdemeanor, this still makes it a criminal charge. Once you have been convicted, this is not the end of the situation. There are some jobs that simply will not allow an employee to have a DUI on his or her record.

Jobs that involve driving, particularly a cab or a truck, would be unlikely to hire anyone who has a DUI charge on their record. Often, school teachers are dismissed if they get a DUI charge. Those who are either hoping to become, or already are a law enforcement officer, might not be allowed to keep their jobs if they have a DUI.  Most people or organizations responsible for employing personnel in the medical field are unlikely to hire someone with any conviction which is related to DUI.

Employers are often put in a difficult situation when one of their employees gets a conviction for DUI, as they may be unable to allow them to continue in the same line of work. Some potential employers could view a person with a DUI charge, however long ago it was, in a negative way. They might think that the person suffers from alcoholism and will be a risk. Employees who are alcoholics can cost businesses money, as they are more likely to fall over and injure themselves, be poor performers and take more days off work.

License suspension is often part of a DUI conviction and if the DUI offence was serious, then you may lose your license for up to two years. This could have a marked effect on getting to work, let alone participating in work related activities such as staff functions and sporting activities.  Any new job that requires the need to drive will be impossible to get. One of the requirements for any driving job is for your license to be clear of any convictions.

Having a DUI conviction is simply less acceptable in any job these days and it can be hard or impossible to keep the knowledge of a conviction from your present or future employer. DUI lawyers know the difficulties encountered by drivers who are convicted for DUI and will work hard to fight your case, based on your own individual position.

If you have been arrested for a DUI in Tampa, you should take the whole incident seriously and contact a DUI defense lawyer who will argue on your behalf. This could mean that the penalty you are likely to get may be substantially reduced or even thrown out altogether. A good Tampa DUI lawyer will know how to find the weak points in your arrest or the way a sobriety test or alcohol test was taken and use that to your advantage. This is your best opportunity to reduce the effects of a DUI charge on getting a job in the future or keeping your current job.
