Will My Employer Know I Got A DUI in California?

Many things happen when a person is arrested for a DUI in California.  Among them are the fact that the DMV is notified almost immediately via the APS process, but what about your employer?  Are they told?  The answer is yes if they are part of the "employer pull program" administered by the California DMV.  This program allows companies to be notified immediately if a driver gets a DUI or some other ding on their DMV record.  This program is a voluntary one and usually only those who drive company cars will participate.  The one sure way to know if your boss is part of this program is to get a copy of your MVR record and it will say if your employer should be told about any action pending on your driving record.
