Can I be denied my WC claim & unemployment for failing a post accident drug test that was given four days after my accident?
Salem, OR |
Was injured on a Thurs. Was home in bed all day fri. due to adverse reaction to tetanus shot. My employer sent instruction to have a drug test on fri. around 3:00pm, saying it needed to be done by the end of the day. My wife, who checks emails for me, received the message at 6:00pm after being finished with an appnt. (have documented proof) I went in on mon. and took the test. Test came back positive. However the cut off levels for the test ordered from employer (have copy) has a 1000 threshold before being considered positive. My test results where were around 650. The testing determination period at that level proves I was not using at my employers site, but I lost my job since their policy states you can be terminated for using drugs on site. How will this effect my WC claim & unemploye
