I have worked for the company for 10 years. My boss and i have always got along up until a few months ago. He got angry when I didn't want a promotion. Don't get me wrong i was flattered when he asked and the position was great but it would have changed my schedule and my dh and i wouldn't have been able to work opposite shifts like we do. We would have no childcare so it wasnt really an option. Ever since then my boss has been trying to find ways to get rid of me and he finally found one.
I am a mmj user. I have epilepsy and i smoke at night after work to help with seizures and other things. When I got my red card my boss/work had me sign an agreement saying that as long as I did not use before and during work I would be exempt for being fired over a positive marijuana drug test. I felt that was fair and thought we would have no problems. My boss is also a mmj user and we have the same caregiver.
Well he called me into his office yesterday and told me i needed to take a drug test. I went and took the test and of course it came up positive for marijuana. I got called into his office this morning and he told me o was fired. He told me that when the new management switched over and we became a new company with new policies that the agreement was null. I just could not believe it. I just do not know what to do. I am meeting with an attorney tomorrow to see if I have any options but I dont think so. I live in CO and have my red card but that doesn't save me from getting fired. UGH
