Thanks for the response. It is my belief that the bare minimal litmis test was done and upon further investigation I have come to learn that these are not specific that one drug can flash as a whole series of varied items. If PCP or Methadone fit into a category then a more decisive and specific test should have been done to ensure the validity prioir to raising the red flag. I am waiting on the subsequent test, that I paid for, to prove no illegal drugs once prescriptions are discounted. The inital test showed prescriptions and PCP and Methadone. My employer didn't believe it but due to company policy had no choice but to lay me off. The company has no problem with prescriptions. I KNOW this was a false positive, once its proven I want recompence for time lost time and personal out of pocket expenditures. I believe the testing site did not perform due diligence.
It was a on job site, first day group test. We all signed a standard form, which I honestly did not read as I have never had this problem before. I know its stupid, but we get tested so often its just robotic. However on every other test I've taken military included the sample is always placed in a sealed container and you always inital the seal. She did not do that for any of us. I really don't want cry mix up I just don,t think their test is comprehensive enough. Thats why I had the subsequent test to a regular lab that I have yet to recieve the results from. The job super said though as soon as it comes back clean I'll be reinstated.
Thank You. I will of couse attempt to strengthen my position with statements from others and more evidence to support my claims, but you gave me a good starting point! Should I need more advice I would surely contact you again. Have a great day!
