If you have an arbitration procedure where aggrieved employees can escalate matters beyond Human Resources Department, then you need to ask for that procedure. It is quite unfair for you to be written up without warning and more importantly without proper investigation. A proper investigation would have entailed sending you for mandatory drugs/substance test. You should have been given the opportunity to explain, that your medical conditions can cause the smell. You would have gotten notes from your health care providers backing up your claim. The bot***** *****ne is you need to appeal this written warning if there is an avenue to do so at job. Otherwise, if you are terminated, you would have a case for wrongful termination if the reason given for your termination is false eventhough your employment is at will.
