Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Thank you for the information and your question. Although I can't second guess the employer's actions since I don't have the facts they have and don't have their rationale, I can say that if the employer violated their own drug testing policies you might have a claim against them. Also, if you, and the other tested nurses were members of a protected class under employment discrimination laws and the non-tested nurses were not, there might be a legitimate discrimination complaint that you could file with your HR Department. Then, if they did not resolve the complaint, you could file a complaint with the EEOC.
Please feel free to ask for clarification. I would be glad to assist you further if I can.
I wanted to touch base with you and make sure that you did not have any follow up questions for me from the answer I provided to you on the 7th. For some unknown reason, the Experts are not always getting replies or ratings (at the top of the question/answer page you are viewing or in the pop up box for this question), which is how we get credit(paid) for our work, that the customer thinks have gone through. In your case I received neither. If you are having technical difficulties with reading, replying or rating, please let me know so that I can inform the Site administrator. Please note that Site use works best while using a computer and using either Google Chrome or Firefox.
In any event, it was a pleasure assisting you and I would be glad to attempt to assist you further on this issue, or a new legal issue, if needed. You can bookmark my page at: http://www.justanswer.com/law/expert-marsha411jd/
