Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and thank you for contacting us. This is Dwayne B. and I’m an expert here and looking forward to helping you today.
What reason did they give for you having to take a drug test? Did they tell you that you wouldn't receive your pay unless you too the test?
How do you know it is on your CDL?
The first thing to try is to write a letter of complaint, either yourself or through a lawyer, to the DOT.
You would be better having a lawyer do it because they can explain that you refused to take the test because you weren't actually employed by the company at that time. It has to be phrased very carefully.
If the agency doesn't withdraw the information then your only other option is to file a lawsuit seeking a declaratory judgment in federal court. Again, you would want a lawyer for this, even more so than the letter, but you may be able to force the former employer to pay the attorney's fees.
Those are the only two methods that can be used to remove the information.
If your question has been answered then I'd offer my best wishes to you and ask that you please not forget to leave a Positive Rating so I receive credit for my work. Of course, please feel free to ask any follow up questions in this thread. I want to be sure that all of your questions are answered.
