I worked for a company after having a DUI that was close to home so I could get to work. I worked for the company for about 3 yrs. I am not sure whether I put it down on the application the first time I worked there regarding the DUI. I am diabetic and had low blood sugars and had the ambulance come many times. Finally I got fired for a bogus reason, when it was really because of my diabetes. I am now on the insulin pump and doing good.
I would still go to the store that I worked at and would talk to the manager about what happened. He needed an experienced employee and begged me to come back. While filling out the application he told me to put NO to the question if I had "ever" pleaded no contest or was guilty of a felony or misdeameanor other than a minor traffic offense. He said he needed someone ASAP and didn't want to have to wait to get the okay from the higher ups before I got the job.
Now I have been back for 10 months and my new manager wants me to become assistant manager. My background check came back with the DUI and they want to terminate me because I didn't put it on the application. I have always been up front about it and told my district manager and my new manager about it from day one. Both the manager and the idistrict manager want me to fight it and call Human Resources this morning at 8AM and tell them what happened. I am supposed to be taken off the schedule and am now off the schedule today until I can hopefully clear it up. I am thinking about saying that the DUI was from my low blood sugar reaction and I didn't blow for the test, because I have known people who have had to send in their medical records to the Dept. of Motor Vehicles for yrs. after getting in an accident. PLEASE HELP ME KEEP MY JOB. Candie
