Can I fight a job suspension because I tested positive for codeine accidentally ?
I had a case of sinusitis and my doctor gave me only antibiotics, I was coughing a lot, even after taking the prescribed antibiotics, I accidentally took my wife's medicine(cough syrup) which contained codeine. Same week I took a voluntary urine test at work, and now my company has suspended me. I explained to them. That it was accidentally, but they will not reason, and now all they see is a positive results for opioids on my urine test, and they suspended me, and they want me to sign a waiver and mandatory commitment to an employee assistance program because they say that "I have a problem" In their eyes I am an addict and a criminal and I am guilty as charged. I am not an addict, I don't smoke nor drink alcohol, I don't even go to work late. I have worked in this company for almost ten years, and this is my first time in this situation. Before I sign any waiver. Do I have a legal chance to defend myself? And what kind of legal rights do I have My union representative say, take the offer of the waiver, mandatory eap and 30 days suspension for been my first time.

Nursing school DUI, NJ?
Hello, I have just been accepted to an RN program in Nj, which is where I reside. I received a dui about 5 years ago in WV. I went into a first timers program, which in exchange allowed the charges to be dismissed and I am now eligible to have it expunged. (Working on that now) My school is currently doing a background check. My question is if this charge shows up on my record, will the hospitals/school that I am doing rotations at prevent me from participating because of this charge? Thank you in advance
