I was recently fired from my job for failing a drug test. I hurt my hand at work and filed an incedent report as a precaution and was sent 4 a drug test. Under the employee handbookit sais nothing about this procedure. If I would have known I was going to be tested I would have never filed the report. But heres were I feel ive been discriminated against. There is a current employee there who got arrested for a DUI while she was employed by them and was never fired. Which under the rulesin the handbook they should have. There also isa couple other emplyees that came in drunk and were sent home instead of being terminated. I feel that failing a drug test for pot is alot less of an offense than putting peoples lives in danger getting a DUI and employees coming to work druk. Do I have a case?
