Can I be fired due to taking medication from my doctor? 1 Answers as of June 08, 2011
My Doctor gave me a 2 day trial of Adderall xr which showed up on my drug test at work. My doctor verified that she did instruct me to take the medication but I have been fired because I did not have a valid prescription. Is this situation legal? How can I be at fault?

It is ordinarily against the law to fire an employee because of a medical condition if the condition does not interfere with their ability to do their job. You should consult with an employment lawyer.
