No because it's confidential and he's breaking the law! He can use other excuses as to why you were let go, but when it comes to this sort of thing he's up to his neck and in a lot of trouble. You could actually sue your former employer for leaking this information. It is no different than if you were on antidepressants and your employer leaked out this information to a prospective employer. If you caused an accident at work or were off a great deal from work (danger to other employees) because of your drug problem, then you need a good lawyer to get you off this one. Always check with your Labor Relations in your area and get the goods from the horse's mouth. Marcy

The answer to this question cannot be known."Bonding" of an employee is done by independent insurance companies that issue such 'bonds.' What criteria they, or your employer, use to screen an employee is entirely up to them.

Certainly. An employer has ZERO duty to allow your meds as an excuse for failing to perform as required, whether you tell the boss of the drugs or not.

Probably. If your employer is testing you It depends on what drug, how much and how the employer feels about it.

Although this is usually a trick question, from my perspective, I believe that even though you had failed, if you were aiming at failing, and succeeded, then you have succeeded in your mission of failing. But if you were aiming to succeed, then there forth you have failed. Why can't it be both?

Failing to report a safety violation is usually considered to be employee misconduct. Under Workers Compensation laws in the United States, simple employee misconduct is addressed by Worker's Comp and the misbehaving employee cannot be sued by another employee of the same employer. However, if the employee intentionally failed to report the violation, knowing that the other employee was likely to be injured as a result, that could be egregious enough that Workers' Comp would cease to shield the misbehaving employee. Whether or not that is the case in a specific incident depends on the laws of the state where all this happened and the specific circumstances of the violation and the injury. Ask an attorney familiar with the laws of that state. Never rely on answers in this forum for such critical information.

No. Your employer can fire you for failing to follow required policies/rules/regulations, but you are entitled to wages for hours worked.

If you were actually working for your employer for the time for which you are claiming, then no, it is unlikely that a court could convict you of theft or fraud (which are CRIMINAL offences prosecuted by the police). However, if you knowingly failed to do your job properly then MORALLY you are defrauding your employer and stealing, you are failing to honour your CIVIL contract of employment. Your employer could therfore terminate your employment and the CIVIL courts (prosecuted by your employer) would likely support your employer in this action.

This means that your employer believes that you are not a very good or productive employee. Immoral character is defined as an individual who carries violating moral principles. Someone who doesn't conform to the norms and values of society or conduct. For example, having sexist or racist views or failing to follow rules, etiquette standards and procedures. Credibility describes how trustworthy and believable an individual is. So negative credibility is stating that your employer believes you cannot be trusted. For example, if you are a compulsive liar, speak against co-workers behind their backs or you can't get things done when asked. We can't tell whether this is true or not because we don't know you as a person. It's not unusual for angry employers to overreact. However there are courses and help out there available which will help you to change your negative points, if what the employer says is truly the case. Your employer can freely give his or her opinion on how you are as an employee if you use them as a reference on job applications. However they may not just spread such things around like rumours, as such act is a criminal offence known as "defamation of character".

The company will almost certainly have broken some part of the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 for failing to keep its employee safe. Obviously you can't imprison a company, but its directors can be prosecuted for failing to ensure a safe workplace and the punishment on conviction would be a large fine. If the company isn't insured for employee accidents, it could be prosecuted for that too. That takes account of criminal law. In civil law the employee can sue for compensation. So that's potentially three court cases the company could end up in, all very expensive

You should ask them for previous client references if privacy concerns allow. Failing that, professional references will work, too.

Based on nothing except what is contained in the question I would say that it is POSSIBLE that you might . . to wit . . 'failing to properly supervise their employee.' Consult with an attorney for a legal opinion, and give them all the facts you can gather.

Unless you have a contract with your employer that states otherwise, you do not have to give two weeks' notice. However, there are several reasons why you might want to:It's good form. Giving two weeks' notice demonstrates your professional courtesy and moral character.It may help you receive accrued paid time off. Unless your state is required to pay you accrued paid time off, your employer may decide whether you will receive paid time off at separation. In this circumstance, most employers will only pay accrued PTO to employees who give appropriate formal notice.It may positively affect your "rehire status." When future employers call a previous employer for a reference when you apply for a job, most employers will only share your "rehire status," that is, whether the company would hire you again. Obviously, being "not rehire-able" doesn't look good for you. Failing to give a formal notice gives your employer good reason to make you "not rehire-able."You won't burn bridges. Beyond employer references for future jobs, you may find yourself wishing to return to the company or working with individuals from the company, and leaving suddenly without formal notice isn't going to help your cause.
