Shouldn’t be an issue but YMMV.

Friend from grad school had the same incident and no problem getting hired - also know ppl with DUIs that got hired...the bigger concern is around if he’s a strong project manager, why is he likely to be laid off soon??

Disclose it after signing offer and letting recruiter know that they’ll see this in his background check report. Categorically state that it’s a misdemeanor and it was a one off bad decision and he’s completed everything that needed to be completed. I’ve changed apartments and gotten a job and have disclosed this every time (DUI conviction) after I know they will be running a background check. Basically, you don’t want them to be surprised when they see it. All the best to your brother! He will come out of this stronger!
