Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you.
This is very poor management and really lacking in basic decency but it is not illegal. I wish I could provide better news for you, but nothing in the law protects an employee from the conduct you describe. If I can clarify anything for you just let me know.
Your employer could potentially be charged with a crime for putting you behind the wheel when you were in an inebriated state. The problem with reporting them is that you would be equally responsible because you were the one driving inebriated. The fact your employer told you to drive would not somehow excuse you from the laws regarding sober driving. So, this probably isn't an issue you want to pursue. Also, since there were no damages (thankfully, nobody was hurt and there was no accident), there is no basis for a civil lawsuit, the goal of which would be to recover damages suffered as the result of your employer's unlawful conduct.
Was there anything else I can do for you?
