    Frequently Asked Questions::I have a friend who has a DUI, and wants to apply to the government....

    I have a friend who has a DUI, and wants to apply to the government. Will he be able to be hired with a DUI on his record?

    Each federal agency or department to which an individual applies is responsible for making the appropriate access, fitness, suitability and/or clearance determination for any position for which the person is being considered.  Therefore, it will be up to the hiring agency to decide the impact the DUI has on the hiring decision.

    If asked on any Federal application or background investigation document, the DUI must be reported.
