Need some advice

Hi all. I have a Problem. Its Complicated. Concerns my Job at Amazon. I'll try to list events in sequence.


02/20/16 I get called into HR. For a "Random Drug Test"


02/27/16 Again, Called into HR. One of the Senior Managers showed me a report on his laptop. I tested "Positive". But couldn't tell me for What? After talking to him, He requested the sample be retested.Then told me I was "Terminated". Walked me to my locker. Then out the door.

3/2/16 I get a call from HR. Need me to call the Lab. The Dr. calls me back an hour later. Informs me that they couldn't get a reading on the sample. And that I need to do it again. I told him I was "Terminated" for a "Positive" reading. He said that is not what was sent to Amazon. And that he would have his Assistant contact them and straighten this out. I called the Employee Resource Center, Who informed me that I am still an "Active employee". He could not find that report I saw on the laptop about "Positive"


3/3/16 I got an e-mail from Randstad. About a resume I placed on Indeed last year. I went up there and spoke to the lady. She took some info from me. Waiting to hear back.


As of 3/4/16, Have not been contacted by anyone at Amazon.


I was told on 2/27/16 that I would be getting paid for the missed days. I'll believe that when I see my paycheck on 3/11/16.


So in a Nut Shell, I have been sitting home since 2/27/16.

Each country has its own laws and regulations covering your employment contract. In South Africa there is an organisation called CCMA where you can go and outline your case. Reading through your explanation, here it would fall into the "wrongful dismissal" category. Your case would be presented to the local court and if you won your employer would be forced to re-instate you, with full pay from date of dismissal. I don't know if you have a similar setup in your country.

There is another side to this. How happy were you with the company? If it was good, then when you are sent back you may be happy, but will it not leave a "target" on your back?

I was never actually Terminated according to ERC. I was told that I would be getting paid for the missed days. How true that is??


The Job? Its local, 5 1/2 miles(Each way) from where I am living. The job is ok. Warehouse. I've been wanting to get into Facilities. Who knows now with this hanging over me?? Unless they will Remove the, Embarrassment, from my record.


I don't speaking to Lawyers. Things that are forgotten about tends to surface.


Thank you Popnut

Isn't Amazon a "unionized" workplace?

I'm surprised the Union hasn't been all over this, like "flies in $hit".

"Terminated and walked out the door" .................sounds like an over zealous manager. I'd be talking to a good "wrongful dismissal" lawyer. I see a good settlement here.

I hate autocorrect. I always end up posting some thong I didn't Nintendo.

What Union???


Company Policy is either Disciplinary action. Or Termination for testing Positive. I want to know Who wrote that report I saw??

Guess I need to find a lawyer on Monday.

They'll try to sweep this under the table, because obviously they were wrong! "Oh, ya...............Come back. We'll pay you for your time off!"
Would you really want to continue to work for these guys?
I see a pretty good settlement from there for their flagrant abuse of power, and wrongful termination. (Even if they say they'll make it right, have papers already been filed with the State for your termination? Unemployment Insurance benefits? Probably too late to get that out of the system.

NJ is an "at will state", which means as long you're not a member of a "protected" group they can terminate you for any reason without notice. If they don't have just cause then you should be able to collect UI.

I thought you were "terminated, and walked out the door"? IMO that's "fired".

"You walked me out the door, and told me I was terminated" ............."Now, do your job and issue me the proper documentation. I'll need it for my lawyer!"

KaChing! $$$$

This is So Convoluted. The Drs office is in FL. Another company in CA sent a report. Accuratebackground.com sent a report to my local HR. I just sent an e-mail requesting a copy of the report.


Anyone in NJ know of a good lawyer??
