Probation officer claims I failed my drug test, it's impossible
I recently took a mouth swab test for a drug screening held at my probation. While taking the test, the swab did not turn the correct color to indicate the test had been completed successfully, yet the probation officer said it was ok to submit it to the lab. When the results came back, she claims I failed the test for marijuana. This is absolutely impossible as I have not used marijuana nor have I ever. I demanded to see the results, and she refused, saying 'she's not required to provide that information.' I also asked to be retested, citing the swab did not turn the right color, and she also refused. It is my contention that this probation officer is either lying, or the test is showing a false positive. I was not given a violation, but this could be an obstacle when applying for an early termination at the halfway mark of my probation. Most importantly, these results are not accurate! I'd like to contest this result if possible. My question- can this be done? How would I go about doing this?
It's a bad situation either way. You can take a private test and submit the results to your PO but you run the risk of...
My driving record states I had a suspension due to alcohol or drugs but those charges were dismissed. How do I fix this?
It is true that my license was suspended. It was automatically suspended while I had to await a court date. My attorney was able to get all the charges against me dismissed and I was given a speeding ticket instead. I did get my license back. If the charges are dismissed, why is a car insurance broker able to see alcohol/drug charges with my suspension on my driving record? I thought the point of dismissing charges was to say the charges did not have merit and I am innocent. Do I need an attorney to go back to court to remove this from my record?
You need to contact the attorney who handle this matter for you. He/she will be able to explain or remedy the...

Just took a drug test for a hospital job I had to urinate in a cup while a nurse kept the door cracked & watched is that legal?
Hi I had to take a drug test for a pre employment job in a hospital setting. I'm not sure if it's legal for a nurse to keep the door cracked open and watch while urinating in a cup without my consent in the stat of New York in the United States. I felt violated and pressured.
If they weren't watching, how would they know the test was legitimate. It's common knowledge that people can cheat on...
Can arrest be considered in regards to employment at a school or getting a teaching license?
Was arrested in 2012 and charged with distributing alcohol to minors. I didn't distribute any substances, I was helping a friend that was renting a space for a party, and some people under 21 must have brought in alcohol. The charges were dismissed with an ACD in 2012. I'm now applying for a teaching position and seeking a teaching license, but I'm concerned whether or not the arrest can be considered during employment? I had read that NY Human Rights Law states that arrests that were dismissed can't be considered, but does this also apply to teaching?
I highly doubt this will hurt your application even assuming that the school finds out about it. It should not turn up...
