Can your employer legally prevent you from driving your vehicle if they feel that you are to ill?

Possibly. If it's a CDL that you need as a requirement of your job where they are insuring you & this may depend too on what STATE you live in. It also depends what the illness is. Is it a hangover? Vomiting? Blacking out? (you do not say). If an employer has KNOWLEDGE that you are in an incapacitated state or have had any illness that could put yourself or other drivers in peril, they may be held responsible for (allowing you to drive with the knowledge i.e. that your driving skills were altered, then) in that case that MAY have the Legal RESPONSIBILITY to prevent you from driving. I don't know that it's necessarily a RIGHT. I'd be glad that my EMPLOYER cared enough either way not to let me drive.
