What are the ramifications of failed breath tests on court-ordered IIDs? (California)

Can I deny employment to someone with a DUI that was dismissed after they finished their DUI probation?
This candidate would work with frail, elderly clients as a caregiver in the homes of those clients. The work also requires the candidate to occasionally drive clients for shopping trips, doctor appointments and so forth. The candidate had a DUI in 2008 and was on probation for along time. In 2014, the DUI was dismissed as a result of the probation period being completed successfully. I prefer not to those who have had DUIs because of the risk that they will do it again while working with my clients. This candidate is telling me that it's not legal for me to deny them employment on the basis of this now-dismissed DUI. Is the candidate correct?
No, the candidate is not correct. You can certainly deny them employment on this basis.
Court threw out DUI but the DMV did not. License suspended for 1 year now how do I get it off my DMV record.
Got my license back but still on DMV record. How can I get it removed since I wasn't convicted in court.
You can't. Dmv and the court are two separate entities. Were you under 21 or was it a refusal? Either way, the dmv does...
What's the best way to divorce a drunk who won't leave?
I want a divorce, but my spouse pretends to think I'm kidding. If I bring it up, he immediately begins to take control of the conversation by shutting me out while he shouts out his spin on things. I refuse to argue and leave. He says I have communication problems. He's right about that - I do with him. He drinks every day, changes moods within minutes, gets hostile, threatening and insulting, I know he's a manipulator. He won't move out of "my" house I hold title to, expects me to pay 3/4 of the mortgage, blames me for our financial problems. I have a lot more to lose than he does and he knows it. Do I need to pay an attorney to dissolve this marriage, or can I just file a petition with the court and do it myself? I feel either way it'll be a hassle. Any advice? Thank you!
From my website -- the definition of an attorney: "Attorneys do what you cannot, will not, or should not do for...

1st DUI alcohol 2005, 2nd DUI drugs 2011. License suspended 1 year on arrest. Now convicted, can they suspend again?
I'm confused about some of the info at DMV. It says I won't have my license suspended if my BAC is below .08. I had no BAC taken because it was prescription medication. Also, do I get any retro time for suspension already served? Can I get a restricted license at least? 1st conviction 2007, 2nd conviction May 2013 (arrest and suspension Feb. 2011). The court did not order a suspension, but did order I immediately get an IID.
The DMV can suspend a license based upon a conviction for a DUI. The DMV will give you credit for any true hard...
