California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
The test came up positive for amphetamines and methamphetamine, I am unsure if my prescriptions would cause this result or not, however I have not been given a realistic opportunity to submit my prescriptions. The medical review lady that called told me to have a list of prescriptions faxed directly from the pharmacy. I get prescriptions from Kaiser and have to get the list from my doctor which I am still working on and it was not possible to simply have the list faxed from the pharmacy. They gave me no other alternative method of submitting my list of prescriptions nor are they giving me the chance to submit over the counter meds. I am also wondering if any of this is in violation of the HIPPA act. Thank you.
I don't take any prescription for ADD, however I do takes quite a few prescriptions for various conditions. Would you like a list? I've been told that the union will no longer employ me until this matter is resolved so any angle at disqualifying this test would be very beneficial. Thank you so much for your effort.
Actually, you provided a hidden gem..... I happen to have taken wellbutrin recently. I want to sincerely XXXXX XXXXX for your time.
Thank you; happy to help. This may be of particular interest:
