We are a federal contractor doing work on a military base in

We are a federal contractor doing work on a military base in Ca. One of our employees was working out on base and was using marijuana, he is claiming that he has a medical condition that allows it. My questions are the following:- can we ask to see his medical card to confirm its validity?- even if he does have a medical condition, but we have a zero tolerance policy - especially as a federal contractor - can we send him to be drug tested and then terminate if he tests positive?

I was terminated because a ex boyfriend whom

I was terminated for misconduct because a ex boyfriend whom I have an order of protection against, continued to write and call my place of employment, saying I was using and selling marijuana to the children I worked around(Rockford Board of Education as a Head Cashier/Lead Cook), until the school came and tested me, and I tested positive for marijuana. I won my unemployment case against them, because it was hearsay and no misconduct of work involved. Can I sue them for anything like unlawful termination, lost of regular wages, late fees for rent because I had to fight for unemployment?

I failed drug testing at work , quit smoking it

I failed drug testing at work for marijuana, quit smoking it and went back to work after 5 weeks of getting clean. I agreed to be tested every week for 2 years to prove I no longer smoke pot. Work told me I failed 2 drug tests that I had on the same day when I came back to work. I do not smoke it any more so how that happened I am clueless. I am waiting on a call from work now (as I had to again be off until this is figured out) for results I had tested for on Monday. If that test comes back positive, which it should not, what are my options. I don't smoke, haven't been around anyone, don't use Hemp oil products, etc....

To Whom it may concern: I reside in the state of

To Whom it may concern:I reside in the state of Maine. I recently took a drug test for a job that I was offered. The job offer was predicated on acceptable background and drug screening. Before it went any further, I contacted the HR person dealing with my employment and told her I was using a medicinal salve for neuropathy that contained cannabis. I also told her I had obtained and used it legally thru the medicinal marijuana laws in Maine as well as 23 other states. She told me to take the test, and if there was any problem I would be contacted by the testing company, and I would be given the opportunity to explain.I do not smoke, drink or use recreational drugs. I had several conversations with the testing agency regarding the process and how it worked. I was repeatedly told if there was an issue I would be contacted prior to my prospective employer, and given the opportunity to explain my circumstances.I took the test, and felt good about it. I had been thru the process, had certification and all the documentation to back it up.Several days later I was contacted by the HR department and a copy of the positive test results. I responded and then contacted the testing agency. I got to the MRO, Dr Jawarski, who couldn't have cared less. I sent all of my documents, and was told these could be faked. She refused to contact the people in Maine, and told me I had to go over it with my employer. I also had the certification people in Maine call her but she refused to change the outcome.I then sent all of the same information to the HR dept, and it didn't matter once the positive results came in, my offer was rescinded. The offer was a good offer, $135,000 plus bonus, car, insurance and all expense covered.Do I have any recourse with the testing agency?Thank you
