I am an RN, 54 yrs old, got a job offer for a Clinical Liaison position with a National Home Infusion Company. I currently have a prescription for Clonazapam and I take 1mg po QHS. I informed my hiring RN manager and HR prior to doing my urine drug screen last week. I got an email today from HR stating my urine screen was negative/ diluted. I had to go repeat the test today. They said it had to be negative period. Do they have the right to not hire me if my test continues to be diluted or if it comes back positive for benzodiazepines??

I am from Bethlehem Pa and have questions about my past

Hi I am from Bethlehem Pa and have questions about my past employment. I am so scared of retaliation that I have not slept for 2 days. I have just got another text stating that she is consulting a lawyer, if I in anyway bring up what happened and am going to be sued. Problem is I filed for unemployment yesterday before the text. Everything that has happened to me is in my filing papers.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: PaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: This is my claim, I used a picture that was sent in group chat to prove to the boss that I don't want to work where illegal drugs are being used. I also suspect he has sabatoged a current job interview I went on. On May 29th I was bitten by a tick, was placed in the hospital on July 7th. I Informed the employer, he told me my job would be held. Have a Dr. note stating that I could not return until Aug 4th. During my employment at Dental office, was placed daily in uncomfortable situations. Extreme fits of yelling between Dr and another employee with constant use of profanity. When both were fighting I was placed in the middle of situations and treated badly. Said employee talked about her drug use on a daily basis, numerous occasions was asked if I would like to partake in drug use. When I became ill I asked if I could be laid off or fired because, my Medical Dr told me I would be out for more then 2 months, up to 3 months. Was told No, job would be held. Office did not offer any FLMA or sick pay. Before Aug 4th my job was posted on job boards, and interviews were being done in office. Was contacted by Dentist on 8/15 to see if I would be returning. I very nicely stated that I would be not returning. That the office did not meet my financial needs. I did not want to stir up trouble in the office about the situations listed above. On 8/16 I was texted a picture of my resume I had listed on Indeed, I feel it was a bulling attempt. There was no other reason for the Dentist to send me a picture of my resume, I sent back a picture of drug employee's drug problem. Upon which he showed said employee, and now have several texts berating me and asking me for an explanation. I do not feel safe in this office, working around illegal drug and fire arms being brought into the building.

I am an independent contract driver at above the average

Hello my name is***** am an independent contract driver at above the average trucking. i put the semi i was driving out of service for safety reasons and instead of fixing the dot violations they told me to go get a random drug test. I can provide an email of violations that were sent to above the average trucking. If they fired me because of reporting dot violations they would be liable in a law suit but to force an independent contractor to take a random drug test turns me into a employee. So where are my benefits.

I have accepted a job offer as an accountant for a

I have accepted a job offer as an accountant for a 32-employee non-profit organization.They are already doing the background, credit, and 5-panel drug test and I am confident I will pass those.However, they also require a physical exam *after* I start the job (during the 1st week). I am very concerned because I don't know what they will be asking me and I have been undergoing treatment for severe depression and anxiety for years. As long as I have treatment, I am able to function normally.I tried to casually (so as to not raise red flags) ask the hiring manager what the physical exam was about, and she said "it's no big deal, they just basically want to make sure you can sit at a desk . . ." What? Of course I can.Anyway, I'm guessing they'll also ask about my medical history (depression, anxiety, hypothyroidism) and medications (an SSRI, a benzodiazepine (klonopin), levothyroxine). I'm so scared that they will decide at this point that they don't want to keep me on after they find this out.Or maybe they will find out about my medical issues and decide I would be too expensive to insure?Anyway, I don't know what to do and I don't want to give notice at my current job if there is a possibility the new employer could fire me after they do the physical.

I received a certified letter today dismissing me from my

I received a certified letter today dismissing me from my job at Cherokee Tax Commission. In March I was suspended for a positive drug test. I was at a party with a friend and others were smoking pot. I did not have a car to go home so the test was positive for second hand smoke. I was placed on probation for a year. During Memorial Day Weekend my family and I went on a short vacation. I developed a severe migraine. As a single mom I did not have the money for an ER visit. My mom suffers from migraines also and had a medicine which her doctor had just given her. She gave me two. Her understanding was the pill was caffeine and acetaminophen. When we returned from the trip, I was tested again and tested position. Our doctor said there was phenobarbital in the pill also. I am not a drug user. I have worked for the Nation for 12 years and this is the first time this has ever happened. I do have a history of migraines and was on FMLA with them when I worked at the casino. I know I should not have taken my mom's prescription but this was a one time incident. I do not feel I should be terminated. Do you think I have a case?
