I took a drug screen test and listed my prescriptions. The MRO contacted me on Tuesday of this week. He asked me if there was something that would cause my drug test positive. Then he asked me my pharmacy and gave him the information. He then said that he will check for the prescription and evaluate abuse. I asked him what does that mean and he said if I was taking 90 bills a month instead of 60 would be considered drug abuse. He said once he valifys with the pharmacy then he will say the test was negative. Anyway, on Thursday there was no validation with my recruiter. The recruiter suggested to call the MRO and ask why there has not a final result. I contacted him on Thursday and gave my name and # and he didn't call back. I called Friday again and to speak with him. I was then called back by someone else and they said after he reviewed with my pharmacy, I have until next Tuesday at 5 to get my doctor to send him via fax I can do my job safety, etc. I take Valuim bid and do have a prescription for phentermiine that got filled days before my test but missed several doses. I called my doctor and he will send a report by Tuesday morning. I wrote down all my medications and I am embarrassed because the recruiters are aware it is with the MRO and it has taking days for his response and I felt like I did everything I am suppose to. They said if the doctor doesn't get back with them at 5 pm Tuesday after all this the test would be reported positive. I don't get my medication filled until the allowed time.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Once he varified the prescription of Valium and no abuse from pharmacy, he would report negative. Sorry, the Valium and phentermiine listed on my initial drug screen medications and I go to CVS. You can't get your medications filled early. The phentermiine is used for my ADHD.JA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: What do you mean? I am an RN trying to get a job at Methodist.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Why should I be connected to a lawyer?

I have been a ca community college teacher for ten years. I also had to have my record expunged under PC Sec 1203.4.. All the schools I work for have a copy of my expunged document. I recently was hired at a college for a 1 year FT position at a separate college from the three that I had been working for, giving up all my other classes at the other schools. They just terminated me today saying that the document showing dismissal under PC 1203.4 was not enough due to the education code 87405. When I read what the code says, it really seemed they misunderstood its content. Also, I've been teaching at three other schools and they have knowledge of my background. I really don't know what to do, I just want to be treated fairly, and what happened to me today was not fair. I was basically forced to leave by a police officer, who had to watch me pack my stuff. And of course everyone in the hall saw the scene and it was very humiliating. Any advice on the situation would be great.
I have worked for my agency for 7 yrs, I have never been in
I have worked for my agency for 7 yrs, I have never been in trouble. Last week, i was called into a meeting room that was locked and was humiliated, embarrassed, and shamed by my supervisor and 3 peers. I asked to leave and come home, I was so supposed to be contacted over the weekend about my decision to return to work or if I was going to resign. I have seen my medical doctor who has now placed me on anxiety medication and wants to place me on short term disability. I have not been contacted and was asked to attend a meeting with my supervisor and his suprvisor at 1pm today. Since I was asked late yesterday, I have not been able to sleep and my medication is not helping me. I am terrified to attend this meeting and feel that I have no choice but to resign. I just need some advice on what I need to do, I am physically ill and just cannot bring myself to sit in a room with him. I have endured years of unwanted sexual comments, all the time knowing that my career rested with this one individual. The agency says it is a safe place, but I do not feel safe nor do I feel that I will be heard. I just need some guidance. please

I have an age discrimination case. Perhaps, not a strong one. I resigned from my company,because I was getting abusive treatment, and did not want to endure the humiliation.After resigning, I asked for unemployment and received it.Now, the case is trying to settle. My company's defense is that I quit, and they said I wasa "valued" worker. I am wondering if this adds up. Why would a company readily acceptthe resignation of a "valued" worker, and then give him unemployment for a resignation.I understand that employees who resign are often pressured to resign, rather than havea "termination" status on their record. They could they get unemployment. But "valued"workers would be encouraged to stay on. I see my company's stance as a contradiction,an evidence of lying. Please respond.

I'm very confused and have been very mistreated. We do not have an HR department. It's a seasonal business and the owners are offensive, insulting, abusing power through means that undermine and humiliate me. I get belittled in front of co-workers, have heard "rumors" spread about myself and my personal life OUTSIDE of work.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: ColoradoJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: I have a contract for full time employment.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I have a meeting with the owner tomorrow and I am not sure what to say and how to defend myself.

I was offered an interim position in NY at a college as a vice president with a start date of August 8. The president unofficially offered the position and asked that the HR director send me a contract letter to sign. Instead of sending the letter by email it was mailed and I did not receive the contract before driving back east from San Diego.I packed up all of my belongings and departed with my husband by truck on Monday, July 25 to move into the apartment on campus which was offered to me on Sunday, July 31 . While en route to the east coast/in Maryland I was informed by the search firm on Thursday, July 29 about an article online about a Title IX issue in which I was indirectly involved in at another institution - I did not have any responsibility for deciding the case which a student had filed a complaint with the Office of Education and I was mentioned due to my role as a dean at the time. The incident has since been dismissed against that institution and no actions against the institution. I sent a full explanation to the head hunter to provide clarification on the matter.The president (who began on July 1, 2016) was gun shy about any Title IX incidents that may be linked to my appointment as a vice president and subsequently I was informed by the head hunter that they wanted to retract the offer.I had already arrived 10 hours within the campus when I am was informed of this final decision and felt totally humiliated and financially undermined that I would have to return to SD without a position, had no communication with the president, and left to go back home.I sent an email to the president and requested the following from the institution: pay all moving expenses incurred and six months of the $175K salary that I was offered. Initially the institution did agree to pay moving expenses (mileage, lodging, per diem for food/expenses) but rejected any additional financial compensation. Later the campus offered two weeks of the salary and moving expenses and asked that I sign a waiver releasing the institution of any legal actions in the future.I believe that this decision/action by the institution was unfair and has caused undue hardship financially and professionally. The background research on a candidate should be conducted before an offer was made. Additionally, I withdrew my name as a candidate for another position in which I was invited for an interview since I had accepted the position at this institution.I believe that the institution should pay at minimum 5 months of the salary. I have not responded to the settlement offer yet and seek your advice--should I just accept the two weeks salary and moving expenses?Thank you in advance for your assistance.R

I feel I was wrongfully terminated from my job of 13 years
I feel I was wrongfully terminated from my job of 13 years by a new HR person. I work for a group of 5 dermatologists and I feel I've been targeted by one of them because I found out she was involved in insurance fraud,. Since that time she made a remark to another employee stating if she took all the front desk people and put them in a room together they might have an IQ of ten. When she found out I knew about her insurance scam which involved an employee, an attorney and herself she pulled me into an exam room and told me not to tell any one because she was afraid she would loose her license. The HR person singled me out in front of other employees and told me I was not a team player,accused me of being rude to one of her new hires,which she brought with her from her former place of employment,and when I tried to defend myself she told me to get out
