we are a 50 something couple caretakers for a senior/diabled apt building. we have a contract but no lease we get are apt/utilites for compensation no monetary pay. we are here for emergencies only!! today we were called in to the office we were not on duty and "randomly" drug tested. Our contract does not specify any kind of drug testing and does not consider us employees. is this legal??
Did you CONSENT to the drug test?
If YES . . . WHY? --If you consented
then why are you complaining now?
You should have complained when
they told you to take the test. You
need to look at your employment
contract. If they violated your
contract then SUE them in court.
Stop complaining and take
action. Just because they are
your bosses doesn't mean that
you have to do everything
they tell you to do. Tell them
you're considering legal action
against them for the tests.
