General Off-Topic Board / Drug Testing, Slander & Wrongful Termination
« on: March 17, 2010, 10:11:35 PM »
What do you guys think of this. A friend of mine who we'll call Jen works in a hospital as a lab technician. She has been there for 2 months and does not get along with her supervisor. From the stories she tells me, it sounds like the supervisor is a real jerk off. Anyway, a week ago Jen was called up to the employee lab and tested for drugs. She was not  worried because she has not used any illegal drugs in years. Anyway, today she was called into human resources and informed that she was being terminated for testing posiitive for opiates. Knowing that this was impossible sshe asked to see the paperwork with her results. The human resources worker refused to show her the test results. She was told that the hospital perfored a test, reeived a positive result,thus resulting in Jen's termination. She has already called a lawyer, but what do you guys think? Personally, I think the test was negative and they want to can her and they're hoping she doesn't fight back. If the test was in fact positive, wouldn't her superior be happy to show her the test. I think if it turns out that the results of the test were negative, Jen will have a pretty good sot at winning a wrongful termination suit as well as a slander suit. Any comments?
