So I’m not looking for a job at a nuclear plant, but I do work for a company that periodically does various types of work at nuke plants. My company suggested I try to get my access badge so I can go on some of these jobs my company does. I know all about the process but a week ago I made a really stupid decision and ended up getting charged with a DUI. It’s my first offense and I have no criminal background otherwise. In my state there’s a program for first time offenders where you take some alcohol safety classes, do some community service, pay fines and after a period of months the charges are dropped and your record is expunged. So I wouldn’t be entering a guilty plea or getting a conviction.

I’ve read threads on here where people with much worse criminal backgrounds got approval. But I’m guessing since this was recent and still pending I wouldn’t receive approval? My job duty doesn’t rely on having access so I can still perform my job if it’s not at nuclear plants. But I’m sure if my work sees a denial and the reason they’ll probably fire me anyway. So I’m pretty much screwed right?

You will be fine.  Just disclose everything.  As long as you are up to date on classes/community service, etc, you won't have an issue.  Just disclose everything.

Ok thanks. I just received the email about doing my PHQ today and I’m still really nervous about it. But if you say I will be fine as long as I’m honest then I will take your word for it.

I was actually denied access. Got a call from the site saying that I was ineligible because my DUI was pending. I was told that once it was resolved and no longer pending that I would be eligible to be badged. I was overcome with disappointment so I didn’t really listen that well or ask questions but I’m wondering when is it considered no longer pending? I am going to be accepted into this program where I do classes and community service and then the charges get dropped. Do I have to wait until the charges are dropped or is once I get into the program it’s no longer considered pending?

Great questions, you will need to call them back and ask them what THEY consider resolved.
