Anybody can be arrested for driving under the influence (DUI), but the possible consequences of a conviction can be much more severe for people who work in certain industries. Alleged DUI offenders who are licensed professionals must not only address legal issues in court but may also face disciplinary measures at work that could have profound implications on their careers.

Health care is a broad field that encompasses a number of different types of practitioners. Virtually every individual in a medicinal field is required to have some kind of license from their respective state licensing board.
A few of the most common kinds of health care workers in Pennsylvania who can have licenses affected by DUI arrests include:
Many other types of professionals can have their licenses subject to some kind of disciplinary action for DUI arrests or convictions. Drivers of commercial vehicles, for example, can have their commercial driver’s licenses (CDL) suspended even if they are arrested for DUI in their own personal passenger vehicles.
A driver will typically lose his or her CDL for one year for a first DUI conviction, two years if the offense occurred while driving a commercial vehicle, and three years if the offense was committed while the alleged offender was transporting hazardous chemicals. Second DUI convictions can result in lifetime loss of CDL privileges.
Under 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 61.15, all pilots must send a notification letter to the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Security and Investigations Division within 60 calendar days of the effective date of an alcohol and/or drug-related conviction or administrative action. Each event, conviction, or administrative action requires a separate notification letter, and failure to submit notification letters can result in a pilot’s license being suspended or revoked.
