Dear Experts, I got DUI last year. I'm not proud of it and I kept it a secret from my employer. Unfortunately, I recently got laid-off. I paid to see if the DUI is on my background check - it is. So, what do I do? When should I tell an employer I'm interviewing with, or shouldn't I? I'm afraid it will keep me from getting the job, but I know if they check my background and I don't tell them it will look like I'm a liar.
