In the immediate wake of a drunk driving arrest, a person's head might be swimming with the potential consequences. For some people, being able to maintain employment might be a major concern. As we covered in blog post on Jan. 23, some people may face termination at work as the result of a drunk driving conviction, depending on specific workplace policies.
Immediately after being charged for drunk driving, people may not fully understand what a conviction could mean for them. As we've previously indicated on this blog, the penalties for a drunk driving charge aren’t limited to the sentence handed down by a judge. Being convicted for driving under the influence of alcohol can also be devastating for a person's professional life, and the importance of this topic merits further discussion.
