Employment Consequences
of DUI/ DWI / OWI 
Over 80 / Impaired Driving


Six Employment-Related Reasons Why You Need to Beat Your DUI ChargeIf convicted of a DUI charge, you will instantly have a criminal record and face severely diminished employment opportunities.  So, you need to beat that charge, and the following six reasons explain why.


1. A DUI conviction is a Serious Criminal Offense in CanadaIf you are convicted of impaired driving, you automatically get a criminal record, and your DUI charge and conviction will be entered into the RCMP database (CPIC) for all the world to see.


2. Your Criminal Record Will Show Up On Criminal Background Checks
Many employers require criminal back ground checks for all employees (and that means employees report any criminal conviction subsequent to employent), which means, upon formal request, the local police will access CPIC, spot, and be required to report your conviction

3. Need a Driver's Licence For Your Job?  Forget About It.
Upon conviction, your driver's licence will be suspended accross Canada for up to a year, and this suspension also applies in many American States.  So if you drive for a living, or need a vehicle to get to and from your job, or to do your job - forget about it.

4. For Professionals - A Criminal Record Means losing Your Ability to Practice

Are you a Doctor? Lawyer? Nurse? Chartered Account? Engineer? or other government-licenced Professional?  If you are, you should know that a criminal conviction will almost certainly result in the loss of your licence to practice as a professional

5. Want a Job in Government? In Aviation, or The Police Force? Forget About It. 
any jobs in government, the military, the aviation industry, and the police force require a clear criminal record. 

6. Do Business in the USA? Forget About It.
Access to the RCMP database of convicted criminals (CPIC) is routinely used by USA Immigration Officers to deny entry to individuals with criminal records.
