I just got off of probation 8/19/13 and have been a temporary worker at a client site for almost a year now. Today I was surprised by a formal offer letter pending the satisfactory results of a comprehensive background check. Will my CWOF show on a third party check? I'd love to get hired here but it would be a bummer if I didn't on the basis of my first (and only) misdemeanor offense.
It probably will unless you move to seal your record It also depends it part on the type of business you work....
If enrolled in a first time offender DAE class listed on the mass.gov page, do they drug test the participants? If so, do they test specifically for what you were on during OUI or just plain urine screen? It appears online that only multiple offenders are drug tested.
Hello - The only time drug testing will be a term of probation is if the judge ordered it during your plea. Check...
My friend works for a transportation company in Newton, and had his license suspended. So he hired me to drive for him picking up his clients. If his work finds out is this a crime?, or only thing that can happen is him possibliy being fired. Thank you
Not criminal as long as you have a license. You want to check with insurance company because upon suspension, the RMV...
I am moving to Massachusetts from Florida for a job. I was wondering if I am convicted of my pending DUI and granted a hardship license in Florida if that hardship license will, "transfer" to Massachusetts with me? What would I need to do for the Massachusetts hardship license process and would it be different than applying for a normal license (which I am familiar with)? Thank you for your time.
first get the Florida license before you worry about transferability. You can contact the RMV and ask.
was trying to make the point that protocol was not followed with regard to the blood sample. However, he never said what protocol was? Or if a hospital could take samples and make them public without the persons permission. So, what is the usually and lawful procedure. Again just curious.... not involved nor will I ever have a dui ... don't ever drink..... just peaked my interest.
Protocol is another fancy way to say procedures. There must be certain steps followed in obtaining a blood sample and...
I took a plea deal in a NH DWI case resulting from a suicide attempt stemming from emotional abuse (I did not move the vehicle, but the attempt used non-controlled pills in alcohol, resulting in the charge and plea). I got a 1-year interlock period to get my license back after a three-month suspension. However the judge said that after a year I may get the conviction reduced to a violation (civil offense) resulting in insurance returning to normal. Now I'd like to move in with my new significant other in Massachusetts. 1. In NH, there are no "Cinderella" licenses. If I move during my interlock period, will it trigger a two-year interlock period in MA? 2. If I move before I get my offense reduced to a violation in NH, but later do, will my insurance drop in MA? Thank you.
Consult an MA attorney, but my understanding is that the interlock device, which you agreed to have installed on your...
I was a licensed driver in MA until last year, when I moved to CA and got a CA license. During a trip to Colorado over the winter, I was arrested and convicted of a DWAI. I have already completed the court mandated Alcohol Education classes, community service, and Victim Impact Panel in Colorado, and am now serving a 9 month license suspension. In Colorado, a driver is eligible to install an Interlock Device after 30 days, and if there are no failed attempts in 3 months of driving, they are eligible for early reinstatement. I have recently moved back to MA, and was wondering if it is possible to either enter an interlock setup similar to Colorado, or if I would be able to apply for a MA work hardship license. Thanks for the help.
The best thing to do is call the MA drivers licence bureau and see whether the Colorado conviction has traveled to MA....
