I failed my annual drug test and took no drugs. What can i do?
I took my annual urine test in North Dakota, i went to a clinic, took the test, and went back to work. The medical review officer called saying i failed for morphine. I never took anything. I got paid for the labs to retest the sample and a week later they called back saying the results were the same. I went home then had a hair test taken. I passed the hair test which is more accurate and goes back farther, I've lost my job which i've had for over 4 years and this looks extremely bad on me. I did nothing wrong, never took anything.

This is posted in the wrong practice area, the correct practice area is employment law. I'll make the change for you....

Please file this under employment law, it's not a DUI issue.
Im on DWI probation, can the judge sentance me to jail for getting a warning on my interlock device for blowing a 0.023.
I was rushing to catch my flight for work this morning & was careless to the type of mouthwash i used. I jumped in my vehicle blew in my interlock & started my car. Then every 5 min i kept having to blow, after about the 3rd time i realized it was giving me a warning of 0.023 Alcohol. I amedatly realized what it was picking up but didn't have any water to rince the alcholol from my mouth. I was about to miss my flight so i just left it alone & didn't 0-out my intoxilizer. I cannot drink while im on probation, but even though i was under the legal limit & the breathalyzer didn't violate me. Can i still get a violation of probation and sent to jail?
Anytime you violate probation the judge can sentence you to jail. However, some judges will opt not to sentence you to...
How do I get a copy of my record from a dui on military base?
1997 or 1998 I was arrested on an Air Force base in Shreveport, LA. How do I find out details of that charge/ conviction on my record? I think I paid a fine and I know I did community service. Was I convicted of a felony?

How long does it take cps to close a case if your drug test comes back negative?
My newborn was tested positive in her stool for marijuana. However I am negative. I have to take a drug test in the morning, which I have no problem with. I will do anything to keep my kids. How long will this case most likely last when my test comes back negative?
This is not a dui defense issue, post under child custody.
Do I have a case for restitution of damages for false positive drug test?
I was a resident in a sober living house and was given a 12 panel drug test. I tested positive for 2 drugs I had not taken in many months. I disputed the results asking for a confirmation test. The house refused to confirm the test and expelled me and called my employer having me terminated. The drug test was at 10:30 am. I rushed to ER explaining what happened and they agreed to retest and send for confirmation test. I was viewed during my retest at hospital and I tested positive again but the hospital then sent it to a lab and it was confirmed as a false positive due to an over-the-counter drug. Can I sue for my job loss, home loss, damage to reputation, pain and suffering?
Not likely to be able to sue for a job loss since in most states you are an at will employee and can be terminated...
How would you answer this question about DUI charges on employment application?
2 years ago I was arrested for DUI and my case was dismissed after pre-trial diversion. I have done an internet background check and it hasn't shown up but I'm sure it will on a more extensive FBI check. But the wording of this question on an application has me confused. It reads: "Have you ever been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance?" I have to answer "yes" because I was arrested even though I wasn't convicted?
The truthful answer to that question is yes. However, if there is an option to expunge the record under LA law, it...
