Not sure if I have anything or not. I am the Safety Director

Not sure if I have anything or not. I am the Safety Director for a company that has four divisions. The division i mainly cover for has parked the trucks and is no longer operating. I was asked to stay on for sixty days to help close down operations. Now I find out it is to train my replacement. Although I worked mainly for the trucking operation I still performed new hire orientations, Safeland training, drug & alcohol screening, accident investigation, and occasionally conducted monthly safety meetings for the division that is remaining operational. The person taking my place has none of the certifications needed to replace me. The company has already paid for him to become a drug screen collector and next week he will go learn to be a Safeland instructor. I am 58 years of age and this person is much younger.JA: What state is this in? And how old is the truck?Customer: Oklahoma, there are many trucks, a fleet of 60 when they shut down operations.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: noJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I feel my employer will say age was not a factor it was a money decision, however I would have take another pay cut if they would have asked.JA: When we are ready I'll take you to the appropriate web page.Customer: ok

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.
