My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: North Carolina
After over 17 years of employment with CVS Pharmacy, I was terminated for privately (ccv) injesting a medication that is prescribed to me nasialy instead of sublingual, the proper way.
LP was apparently investigating me for taking money that they planted in the deposit but to their suprise, saw me snorting something in the office behind locked doors, that I had seemed to crush and started questioning me about it when Lp began a written deposition that I have yet to get a copy. I gave what I thought was a weak but belivable excuse, because it was true, which ultamatly turned into my termination that states: Code of Conduct. We are commited to providing an alcohol-free and drug-free work enviornment. since I was seen and admited to snorting drug illegally you are putting our colleagues and customers in harms way. I have been on Subutex for helping me stay opiate and alcohol free. I admit, its stupid. But not legal? I had admitted doing it 3 times in my life when i had suddely called to work in the am and not have but a fraction of my dose when doing this to ease my panic. . I KNOW they fished for other reasons but only could come to this after over 2 weeks of me thinking I was getting paid suspention but thats another question..
Thanks for your time and I will get more detailed if needed
