I have been offered a job, signed a contract of acceptance, and quit my current job for the new job. The new job has required that I take a drug test and the test included a nicotine test. I am not a regular smoker, but I did have one cigarette the day before my test and I live with smokers. I am very concerned that the new company will not honor the agreement I signed and rescind my offer of employment based on the results of the nicotine test and I'm wondering if I have any legal recourse if this does happen. I'm particularly upset about this because I don't consider myself a smoker because I went through lengthy medical treatments for cessation of smoking 3 years ago and since have only had a cigarette on rare occasions. I feel discriminated against, and embarrassed, and after all of the work I did to obtain a very good position with the new company and leave my current company I don't think I should feel this way before I start the job. I would very much like to know if there have been any successful cases of smoking discrimination in Washington, because I don't think there is any legislation in place in this state to stop smoking discrimination in hiring practices right now. Thank you.
