I went in for a pre employment drug screen and physical after being offered a job. I passed the drug screen and the physical parts like the hearing and eye test. When I went to finalize my physical with the PA he saw I wrote down suboxone as being one of my medications. He then tells me that I can not work with heavy machinery! I replied by saying I drove here and my SPECIALIST has no restrictions on me. He did not care and I was setup with an appointment with his boss. I brought a letter from my prescribing physician and supporting documentation I printed off the SAMSAH website that state suboxone does not impair physical or mental abilities. I was denied the job by the company and now I'm filing a lawsuit along with complaints to numerous agencies. I have started a fundraiser to help me fund my fight against ignorance. Please help me out no matter if it's a dollar.This issue affects thousands of people in my community because almost all businesses use this clinic. My fundraiser can be found on give forward. My name is Tim Campbell.

Hi Tcamp30,

That sounds more like a violation of the American's with Disabilities Act. You may want to change the direction of your lawsuit with that in mind.

Sorry, I deleted your other post as it was just a duplicate of this one. You only need one topic to get your message across. And not to upset you but this is not the place to put an URL for fundraising. We do allow links but they need to be either to a recovery site or something similar. Personal requests should be posted on FB or other types of social media.

Now that I've probably got you mad, I do hope you prevail in this lawsuit. It is completely against the law to be denied employment because of a medication you're on. Was it mandatory for you to list it? That seems another violation of the HIPPA act. Your health records are supposed to be private.

Do some research up top of this page and read some of Dr. Junig's blog posts. There are some related to your issue. If you have trouble just ask and we'll dig around for you.

Good luck on your fight.

hi tim,

I am so sorry to hear that you were discriminated on your new job.

I have said this many times on here. But there is NO REASON when applying for a job that you should have to state what medications you are on. NO need. I know what is done is done. But for any future applications. I would not write down anything. It is none of their business. You are taking a legit medication that was prescribed by a doctor. End of story...That should not affect your work in any way.

It only gives the Employer a reason to screen individuals by reviewing your med list.

I wish you luck in your lawsuit and hope you find another job soon.

I second that.. NEVER tell a place your trying to get a job at that your on anything. It's None of they're business and the "Hippa act" protects you and keeps anyone from being able to find out anything about your personal medical stuff. Oh well, now you know for next time. It's the employers right to pass on a person that's on an opiate. It's not right but either is life..
