New York Drug Testing Lawyers
Employers have a certain amount of power over their employees, and this power should always be used responsibly. Unfortunately, business owners aren’t immune to overstepping important boundaries. If you face retaliation following a drug test, an attorney can help you understand your rights and take the appropriate action. Depending on the job, drug testing can be an occupational necessity to ensure that employees are able to safely perform the duties of their job. Many employers require applicants to take a drug test before progressing their application to the final steps. In these cases, employers are simply doing their due diligence and setting expectations for their employees. However, in other circumstances, invasive and unnecessary testing may violate an employee’s right to privacy.
Even though New York state doesn’t have specific laws on the books to limit employee drug testing, if a drug test leads to discrimination or infringements on employees’ rights, it becomes a workers’ rights issue. If you have been treated unfairly in the course of drug testing at work, you have rights and the lawyers at Hach & Rose, LLP are ready to help you defend them. Call our team of New York Drug Testing Lawyers today at (212) 779-0057 to discuss your situation.
Do I Need a Drug Testing Lawyer?
The New York state legislature has not passed any such laws to restrict an employer’s ability to drug test employees, but this doesn’t mean that you have no legal recourse if you’ve been treated unfairly in the aftermath of a drug test. If your employer has violated your rights, discriminated against you, or targeted you unfairly, accepting this treatment sends a message to your employer that they can steamroll the rights of all their employees. By taking legal action, you let your employer know that they need to practice thoughtful and fair drug testing practices in order to avoid legal action.
