I had a background check when I was hired years ago. I told my supervisor at the time that it would not have great results. We have had a lot of management turnover since then. I'm curious if anyone has access to the records now? Does anyone know if that info is kept in my HR file somewhere? Also who is able to view it?

My criminal background record is like 25 pages long lol, but I’ve been hired and promoted at just about every job with my background. I know I had to go down to HR to sign and explain my record once my fingerprints came in, so I assume they stay in HR? My supervisors were also privy to my record, but other than that, who knows. Are you concerned about someone potentially seeing your background?? And we are talking about criminal background, correct??

I am talking about criminal background. I'm not concerned that I will get any issues from it. Most senior leadership and others like me. I'm just curious if they know. We go out to dinners sometimes and one person will try to get me to drink wine. I'm wondering, as an example, if that person knows about my history and still chooses to push things like that.
I've gotten that comment "what, if you drink, you will start dancing on tables??" And while I know that my reasons should be irrelevant if I say no thank you, I am just curious.

Assuming one is an alcoholic...is there any middle ground for occasional drinks or is it all or nothing for recovery?

I struggled with binge drinking for many years after my mom passed away. I have been sober for the past 12 months. My husband has struggled with drinking for a long time as well, and just got done serving a 6 month sentence for his second DUI (on ankle bracelet at home for 4 months of the sentence). He got out of jail this week, and he has drank almost everyday since. He says he is different now, and can control himself (i.e, he won't be abusive or drive). Continued in comments..

My husband is an alcoholic and it’s getting worse with the holidays. He’s started every day drinking high alcohol-content IPAs as early as 8am. And he drinks them all day and all night like soda. He did AA when he was younger but is now vehemently against it. He is high-functioning. Has a PhD from MIT and works for a venture capitalist firm. I wondered how he gets through the day, but he started to come home early (mid-afternoon) and immediately open a beer while working. What should I do?

Went for a pre-employment drug test yesterday. They never asked me if I was on any medications. I had to ask them and was told "oh yeah, just put any you may think make a difference in this text box." I put Xanax, Flexeril, and gabapentin. All of which are prescribed and used as directed. Now I'm terrified that I should have put ALL my meds, to including my psych meds. I've been sober over 12 years and never touched drugs (just booze) but I'm having a full blown panic attack.
