So a lead who for reasons unknown just doesn't like me and that's fine I'm at work to work not be friends with everyone and be civil. I also get along with everyone but him. He's been giving me a hard time for a few months and the managers are aware as well as other employees.so today I get drug tested for suspicion and it was this guy who said I was acting jittery and my eyes look bucked. I don't do hard drugs and haven't drank in over ten years. My test will be clean however I was upset while waiting for the people to come and test me and went to my car to get my phone. I was threatened if I left I would have the cops called and be arrested. Than after the test I was told I couldn't take my car home. I had to get a ride or have someone come drive it. I asked for the rules stating this and when receiving them it says nothing about anything close to that. It does say if found positive they will provide you with a ride home again my results will be clean and the send them out so they shouldn't of threatened me and made me leave without my car.i wish there was something I could do. It's obvious I'm being messed with and others see it and have spoke on my behalf. I just have to find another job now but I shouldn't have to quit a job I enjoy because management won't do anything.

When I was getting treated badly by my boss I just quit it's not worth working under such stress. I mentioned it to a couple coworkers and let my boss know that because of the treatment I'm not going to pretend I'm irreplaceable and told her that I was actively looking for a new position. Life is stressful enough then to work in a toxic work environment.

Report them to the EEOC, as for the Lead file a harassment lawsuit. I belive in having my phone on Record when dealing with management they can never be trusted and management sticks up for management. I know because I have been management and watched all the bullshit

Call a lawyer if it happens you can sue them for lawful determination and sue the guy that's threatening you

You don't have to leave your job. WHEN you come back negative you don't have to leave your job. I think you should have called the police on them for them telling you you can't have your car. I would not leave my car on their premises. It is your car. You don't know what they will do with it or say about it. You should have had someone come and drive you home in your car. You SHOULD HAVE CALLED the POLICE. You should have exposed to the Police who your company really is. This would make so big a scene that your company would evaluate the situation. Don't quit your job. Make them fire you. You are NEGATIVE so why are you worried? They are right if you are jittery. You shouldn't be going to your car if you are in the middle of a drug test or waiting to take one. They want to know where you are at ALL TIMES. You are worried now about leaving your job. You have to CALM DOWN! Don't quit. Don't say anything when you go back to work. Keep to yourself. Do NOT MENTION the drug test to anyone. DON'T talk about the car thing to others either. You should have called the police though so there would have been a report and you could have sued them for harassment. Also, the police would intervene with them not letting you have your car and the police could do their own evaluation of your appearance and behavior. DON'T QUIT!!! If they test you 1000 times so what? They pay for it. Their work doesn't get done AND they look bad.

Everything is ilegal in every way. You can't be arrested for not taking a drug test. You're being harassed. That's also ilegal. The guy that doesn't like you said that because your eyes were bucked. What if you didn't get enough sleep? Is that wrong? You should get another job, but also a good lawyer and get well oriented.

Ok, so I read 2 sentences, because the rest is bullshit! Leave it be arrested. Are you an idiot? Arrested for not taking a drug test? If you were drunk or on drugs, they can call the cops, but the cops have to catch you driving!! They can’t tell you that you can’t leave or drive! That’s your decision. What are you people, in kindergarten?? Y’all don’t have a half of brain to know right from wrong….. idiots plain out idiots! FIND A NEW JOB … simple as that.
