Health Professionals File Class Action Against HPRP OK ladies and gentlemen. Now it begins. If you live in the state of florida, I highly urge you all to contact this this firm. The case is happening in michigan so florida is waiting and watching to see what happens. The laws apparently are a little different there but its all the same. It may not change the outcomes for those of us in our unfortunate circumstances but it sure may help others down the line. Not only should IPN/PRN/PHPs be held accountable but the laws mandating that hospitals etc. report or coerce self reporting needs an overhaul as well. Not everything is black and white. There should be a paper trail and documentation proving a case of suspicion before DEMANDING an employee drop a urine. An employees refusal to do so DOES NOT prove or disprove they are IMPAIRED. DO NOT and I REPEAT DO NOT EVER submit to a urine test if it incriminates you. Go ahead. Get Fired. Let them report you. Let the DOH investigate. Hire an attorney. Once they have proof of any substance you do not have a prescription for, you are DONE. Do not voluntarily get yourself involved with IPN/PRN/PHPs. They will ruin your life.Be smart. Do not be afraid to fight back. Their power over everyone is holding our livelihoods at stake. That is extortion and THAT is illegal. Keep in mind also that the people inflicting this injustice upon health professionals are HEALTH PROFESSIONALS. Its a war upon its own. Anyone that is seriously in trouble with substances should be able to get the help they deserve WITHOUT FEAR. A health professional who removes themselves from the workplace to privately seek treatment on their own volition is STILL REQUIRED TO SELF REPORT. They are PUNISHED for getting help. Its messed up. Its wrong. I wish I had answers that would be fair to both the public and the individual. These agencies fail to take into account the blast radius of individuals surrounding the one caught in the snare are PART OF THE PUBLIC that are in harms way. ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL.
