    I've been with the company for fifteen years and was wondering if anyone has lost a job over a dui?

    I believe the contract states clearly that your job will be held for a maximum of 1 year. Anything more than that and there is no obligation for the company to keep you.

    Of course, if you get a DUI and aren't up-front about it (I believe the contract states you have 1 business day to notify the employer), you can be tossed for integrity.

    First DUI---mandatory rehab, must be asessed by SAP (substance abuse professional) and successfuly complete rehab before returning to driving. Must have license reinstated. Job will be held for max of one year. Must sign "last chance" agreement. During license suspension, employee may displace least senior PT worker in hub/preload.

    Second DUI---bye bye forever.

    Our center has had 3 drivers get DUI's within the year. It's usually a driver you wouldn't expect to get one. Please guys, be careful.

    We had at least a dozen or more over the years lose their jobs. Drugs too, not just booze.

    UPS went down the path of rehab with them, but they wouldnt.

    There are many more that got the idea, and modified their behavior.
