Can I work as a taxi driver if my DWI is expunged ?
The court in Minnesota has recently granted my petition for expungement of my very old DWI conviction. I am also aware that I will need to wait 60 days after the grant. However, I would like to know if I will be able to work for Uber ( taxi driver) after file is sealed ?!

My dui citation isn't in the system? Did I actually get charged?
I recieved a citation for a dui December 3rd, 2016 (over two and a half months ago) and it is still not in the system. When I call in they say there's no record of it (so I also have no idea how much my fine is), and I have yet to receive my court date. I was with my boyfriend and he got an underage drinking ticket at the same time but that was in the system within 10 days. Is this long a normal time frame? Or did my ticket get lost or something? I would just like to know what exactly should I do in this situation, and if I'm actually going to get charged.
It's hard to say. It's possible that the prosecutor just hasn't filed the charges against you yet. Did they do a blood...
What I wrongfully suspended? Did HR handle this correctly?
Another co-worker was eavesdropping on the conversation and went directly to HR reporting that I had said the n-word. (this person who reported it was white). This incident happened two weeks ago on 2/9/17. It is now 2/21/17 and they brought it up to me today, and suspended me for three days immediately.
This is not a Criminal question. You should consult with an attorney who specializes in employment law.
Why wasn't I informed about "no alcohol use or drug use" on back of my license?
Back in October, I was stopped and charged with DUI. I beat both the criminal and DMV hearing parts of it. The state of MN gave me my driving privileges back, so I thought everything was good to go. The other night I was in my truck coming back from the casino, and my friend was driving my truck (sober) and we got stopped and he ran our licenses. He came back to my window and said that I had a no alcohol or drug restriction on my license, and that he wasn't going to issue me a ticket or anything that night, but if he had to he would send it in the mail. I was never informed or agreed to in writing for the "B-card." I just looked it up out of curiosity, and I see that it says any violation of the "no drink, etc" results in immediate cancellation of my driving privileges. Is this true? I just don't see how if I never agreed or was informed about the restricted driver's license how I can get lose my privileges? Any help/feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
I had a similar case some years back. The DPS took the position that they cannot cancel and deny (B-Card issuance) if...
