some help please, think my employer is fuckin me
So i had been taking an anti anxiety medication called buspar for eight months, i called off when i was sick one day because i didnt have the money to fill my script and he told me he doesnt want any mechanics (i work maintenance in a factory) taking any medications and that if i wanted to keep my job i had to stop taking my medication. Can a boss force an employee to stop taking a medication that was perscribed by a dr? Because of him making me stop taking my meds i went threw withdraw pretty bad because i was forced to stop cold turkey and missed work because of it.

I was just wondering if there is any legal recourse i can take against my boss? Because of the time i missed they threatened to fire me and i had to jump through hoops to be able to keep this job.

Id realy be grateful if someone could help shed some light on the situation for me. I dont think its right what they did and am wondering if i should talk to a lawyer or not?

I do have anxiety problems and they helped me with it a lot. I dont know what to do really and am seeking some advice.

That sounds like a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act. No boss can tell you not to take the meds your Dr prescribed.

The ADA says he cannot do this. You are covered by the ADA, since you take precription medication for a medical/mental issue. You can sue the crap out of your employer.

Go back to your doctor and tell him, get back on the meds. Maybe you can take a milder dose. See what the doctor says about your employer. Get everything in writing, from your doc and document everything from your employer. Just incase. But you need to take the meds.

I don't think it is any business of your employers what you do if it is not work related.

I would go talk to a lawyer ...

Your employer is NOT a doctor and has no business giving you medical advice and forcing you to do something

with potential medical side effects

this is my opinion

Sometimes you are in such a situation, that you have to get legal help. What the OP's employer is doing, is definately against the law.
I had a difficult boss at one point. She was my immediate supervisor. I was 2 months pregnant with my oldest daughter, and I already had a baby bump. My supervisor told me I had to quit my job, as a pregnant woman working didn't look good. I refused and contacted the EEOC. She got fired.

This was my full time job. I had no problem doing it at all. I also worked 2 part time jobs in addition to this full time one, while I was pregnant with my oldest. I was working 7 days a week and 12-16 hour days while pregnant. I was not sick or tired, and my doctor said it was OK for me to work as much as I wanted to. My boss had no right to tell me to quit because I was pregnant.

At any rate, you must be the first to file a complaint. Then if they fire you it's retaliation, they get in a ton of trouble.

But if you don't complain and they make up some excuse to fire you, it's hard for you to say it's retaliation.

I know this sucks, now you probably think things are OK with the boss again and don't want to be an ass. My experience is that probably things are not OK with the boss; you have to be the judge, but don't wear rose-colored glasses.

Good luck.
