Ever since I got this oui in 2017 I haven't been able to get it a good paying job. If this employer finds out that I need to have an interlock device, I will not get the job at $21 an hour. I'm wondering if there's an alternative just for my employer? This job is working with the state, money that I can get my life together finally again, I can buy my car after saving. Otherwise I can't get a job with that higher pay. It's a great opportunity for me. I have complied with fines and jail time, with the exception of a couple of hundred dollars still owed. I'm unemployed right now and very scared somewhat.
I've moved to DUI/DWI to see if the attorneys who practice in that area have greater insight. There is no "just for work" exception to IID. Without knowing the circumstances of your conviction it is difficult to tell you if you can have the restriction lifted. When sentencing you for your DUI/Refusal conviction, the court must order an IID. The length of time the IID is required depends on the number of previous convictions for DUI/Refusal. The court has minimum sentencing guidelines but can increase the time specified at its discretion. If you are still under an IID restriction from 2017 you must have multiple DUI/refusals?
Your employer will know of the restriction when they see your drivers license. It will have the C restriction on it and state "IID required" on the back. They will also see it when they run your driving history. Best to be upfront with your employer once you have this all figured out.
