Hello and I am very sorry to see this has occurred. You are correct that alcohol testing can be inaccurate at times. There a few possibilities for you. One is to contact your union if you have one to ask their help. Another is to try your human resources department to explain. If terminated, you might have an argument that the employer failed to follow the same rules for all employees and this resulted in discrimination toward you. This is very difficult to prove but not impossible. Hope this helps?
