I am a healthcare professional. I had fmla leave which resulted in management retaliation for a month upon returning back to work. Then, 2 months later, I fractured my hand. I worked without restrictions, and never complained. 2 weeks later, my best buddy of 20 years died. I had a panic attack at work. I left 4 shifts for this. I was supposed to work this weekend. My manager asked to speak with me and then b had me sign a paper referral to EPA.(HR therapists) AND then she says that they will require a fit test before re-entry into work. This fit test required a drug screen. Unfortunately, after Aaron's wake, Mt friends of 20 years and I got together around a bonfire and smoked Marijuana. I hadn't done it since college. And now here I was in this meeting with a manager that dislikes me... breaking the news of a drug test.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I failed.

I already asked a question and am trying to get to my answer

hello. I already asked a question and am trying to get to my answer on my account.JA: Sorry about that. I must have missed it. Could you tell me again?Customer: I live in new jersey. I work in health care. We do not have proper management at this time. We lost a director and 2 supervisors. We have one supervisor who is trying to manage everything, but he is depending on people who are rotten, cause problems, and create a lot of issues. I have been through discrimination, favoritism, nepotism, and cronyism. I realize this is all difficult to prove. About 6 years ago I was accused of smoking marijuana outside of my work. (different job) I went in front of the state board and was exonerated of all charges. I passed a drug test and they dismissed everything. Some people that I work with heard about this. Can they harrass and accuse me of anything pertaining to that?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: NJJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: 6 years ago, it was reported...But I was exonerated and everything was dismissed and erased.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Just what to know what my rights are. I was working in the NICU, last night. Me and a coworker had 11 ventilators and an oscillator. I had to attend a preterm delivery with a sick infant. I am not friendly with the people who they have in charge. They tried to pull my co-worker leaving me with unsafe working conditions. I have a doctor who called the charge person, but she did not answer. I am always afraid that these people will bring stuff up from my past to try to get me fired. I work hard and I am punctual and well liked by the doctors. I am hated by my respiratory department because I do not play the same games as they do.

I started working in a new employment two months ago today.

I started working in a new employment two months ago today. Two other girls were hired along with me. It's been a challenge and we have continually be discriminated against in a matter of a few weeks of being there. We work in a big room with cubicles, about 8 to 9 people working together. One day there was a funky smell in the room. My supervisor came in the room and stated that it smelled like cigarette smoke. She accused me of smoking and started to smell my area. She then went about saying that it smelled like marijuana. Two co-workers were there to witness this. She then told the director what happened and the director of the non profit never spoke to me or other co workers, she assumed that the supervisor was right because they are actually friends. She asked all of us new girls to take a random drug test without having 24 hour notice, they harassed me all day, the same day they told us to get the test. They asked me 3 times in a matter of 4 hours left of the day. My supervisor even corned me and kept asking me when I'm going to take the test, she even said to me that i shouldn't be smoking at all, which on a personal view is none of her business. We no longer feel comfortable working there because not only did we take a random drug test and passed, they never gave us the legal amount of time and they falsely accused us. If it was because of the smell all 9 of us should have taken the drug test. Its only been 2 months and rumors are spread like live fire and I do not appreciate someone messing up my reputation.JA: Can you tell me where the nonprofit is registered?Customer: Danbury ConnecticutJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I called the state of Ct human rights hotline but i have not been able to speak to anyone.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Thats all

I have an employee that was distributing prescription meds

I have an employee that was distributing prescription meds and Marijuana. They also provided urine for another employee to pass a drug test at a court appearance. They have since quit but their kids still come to the school (a private school). They have been grabbing employees in the parking lot and making accusations and are constantly texting me with complaints about how their kids are treated (they are still in the school). They quit by texting me they weren't coming back because of the way they were being treated by their supervisor. I need to tell her that she can't come on property. So, she can either pull her kids out or have someone else pick them up. I need advice.

I'm on workers comp for a neck injury. I'm waiting for them

I'm on workers comp for a neck injury. I'm waiting for them to approve surgery. I'm sick of going to pain management, it's not helping. But I still need disability notes to get paid from WC in the meanwhile. My surgeon says he don't need to see me until he gets approval. What is the longest disability note I can get from a doctor that Workers Comp will accept? I would like to get a 60 to 90 day disability note so I don't have to keep going back to a doctor I dont like and don't help me every month.Thanks
