I have tested positive for drug
urine test (which I am not even sure was part of my contract), they told me i'm too valuable and asked me to go to psychologist for 3 months and regularly randomly tested me for 2 years to follow, it was clear to all, including psychologist, that I never had a problem with drugs
, it was just seldom on occasion. The company has continued to grow and do better due to my marketing efforts. Then, 2 years later, they tested me randomly first thing in the morning after I went out, apparently there was alcohol in my system, but nothing else. They understood that i was out and yes, it must have been the first time I urinated since the night, so obviously it was in my urine. Our company has grown from 1 office to 2 offices, while staff size has remained the same. We went from me consulting for one person, to consulting for 3 people. Work load has continued to increase, never had a lunch break
in 3.5 years, just quickly a bite of food and running back. I was overworked, and overwhelmed, and still company kept growing and has now become top 3% in the country. They gave me a contract to sign last Friday, which has a ridiculous restrictive covenant - that i can't work for 2 years if i leave in this field in 2 mile radius of each office (that limits my opportunities tremendously). They also wanted me to sign that I am agreeing to uninterrupted half hour lunch break, or otherwise i can have half hour uninterrupted but unpaid break. I refused to sign it, and it was immediately followed by a drug test, which I told them will be positive due to my bday vacation (I explained that i only do it on special occasions and although I respect company policy, which is why I wouldn't do it during working week, but they need to respect my personal time choices which don't effect my work). At this point, they terminated me and made it look like its due to "drug problem" and lied about patient complaint which cost them loss of profit. All the complaints were due to the doctors in the office not providing patients with results they wanted (cosmetic surgery office), and I was always responsible to make patients happy and make sure they don't complain about the doctor or give her a bad review. NONE of the patients in all my years there have ever complained about me!
Also they said I would come in to work "appearing disheveled or intoxicated" - that's not true, I would never ever come to work intoxicated! I have a child I take to school at 8am each morning, I'm a single mom with a mortgage and car. The only times I looked not my best was when i spent nights crying over the fact that my partner started to cheat on me due to the fact that i'm never home, always working, and i had to let him go. I hid this information for a while, but at some point i have told them that this is what happened. I'm afraid she's trying to prevent me from getting unemployment
please somebody help!!!
