I left work in an aid car to the Hospital around 9:40pm & the next day was told that its company policy that if an employee leaves work in an aid car its company policy to go have a UA test done. Nothing stating company policy in employee handbook.
I was having effects of dizziness,headache,confusion,,feeling nausea, & pain in chest,which esculated to trouble breathing & loss of consciousness. All of these are side effects from taking Ibuprofen which I have been taking for years ,but once I started to feel dizzy I went to take 8 at once due to my high tolerance to medication,with a small amount of water & layed down on a bench in the lunch room.
My drug test showed + for Marijuana,which can happen from using Ibuprofen.
I haven't done any drugs for over 15 yearsI didnt know about side effects or symptoms from Ibuprofen nor the fact that Ibuprofen can cause a positive drug test for Marijuana until after I was informed of the positive results, & started to do several hours of web searching. Also according to MY RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBITIES AS AN EMPLOYEE IN WASHINGTON STATE. Section 6 Unemployment Compensation "Unemployed through no fault of your own" "you’ll qualify for unemployment compensation unless you’re fired for “misconduct.” Misconduct means that a worker acted in willful disregard of the employer’s interest and harmed the employer’s business. To be misconduct, the worker’s act must be intentional, grossly negligent or take place after warning against it. "Mere incompetence or a mistake in judgment isn’t misconduct."
