I was recently brought into office with Director, Superviser,

Customer Question

I was recently brought into office with Director, Superviser, and educator.

I had had some difficulty with new printer used to retrieve assession numbers for labs. And was asked to work a day shift to practice with and master the use of the printer.

Naturally I assumed that was the subject of the visit.

I have worked at the facility for over 5 years always with good reviews.

I was asked if I do any illicit drugs.

I was told that with feedback given by a few Team Leader's, I was not hireable and nothing had been written up because they felt sorry for me.

The director has been there a few months and really does not know me. And I feel as if I've been punched. I had absolutely idea what to do.

What question do you have regarding your situation?

What should I do? I love my work.

Never had an issue like this, definately not feeling any empowerment. Feeling very threatened and shocked......sad...depressed...deflated...numb..

Hello Beth,

What was the nature of the allegation made against you? Are you being terminated or suspended, or anything?

Does your employer want you to take a drug test?

Finally, are you an 'at-will' employee, or do you have an employment contract with your employee or are you represented by a union?
