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??

My wife is a radiology physician, who recently started a new

My wife is a radiology physician, who recently started a new job (3-year employee contract) with a group in Toledo, OH. However, she's just gotten a very lucrative offer from a different group in FL. Her contract says that she needs to give 120 days notice before the end of the contract's annual term for it not to renew, or to provide 90 days notice if she wants to break it after her first year. She also needs to pay back her 10k signing bonus if she breaks the contract during first year. However it doesn't say how much notice she needs to give if she wanted to quit during first year and how much time she'll have to pay back her signing bonus. Can you help to clarify that? I can attach her contract if necessary.

My company hired me in June, as a full-time salaried

My company hired me in June, as a full-time salaried employee. Today, they told the employees that the company will be "shutting down" in November due to it not being a profitable month for them. I do not have vacation time accrued yet (we do not get vacation time until we have been employed for a year.) They are requiring that all employees take the month of, and in my case, without pay. Other employees are using vacation time. Is this a legal practice? No notice was given until this morning.
