Thank you for your post. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.

I am very sorry to hear that. But I am not really a miracle man, what I can do is try to best help you with your concerns. So just to be clear, this was not a false test, it was a valid result?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No it was false positive I do not do drugs period
Expert:  Dimitry K., Esq. replied 2 years ago.

Ah, I see. That is most helpful. Historically even medical experts believe that anywhere up to 1 in 10 positives are actually false positives.

What, if anything, did you attempt to get this resolved with the employer? Did you request a new test, for example?
