Ok I just got fired from a good state LPN job. I had some pills in my locker. Not narcotics but clonidine and some effect. I did not talk with investigator other than reminding him there was no lock on my locker and anyone could have put them in my locker. Other nurses confirmed that people have been in my locker getting coffee and sugar. I don't know where to start. Talk to a lawyer? They did not do a drug test and I don't do any illegal substances. I have some interviews this week. What to say? Please give some guidance. Thanks.🙄 oh and this was a dept of corrections job so yeah that makes it a badddd deal.

Admit nothing. Get a lawyer and fight it.

Ask lawyer about getting your own drug test done. Urine/hair testing.

I'd find an attorney that specializes in employment issues asap. Did they report it to the Board of Nursing? If that is the case then search for an attorney that does both. Also get your own test done, urine and hair test.

Clonidine... is used for other things, but my doc always gave it to me for withdrawals when I was doing research and development.

 You said “I had some pills in my locker,” not “someone put pills in my locker.”  

 

Sounds fishy..... good luck, you’re going to need it.
