I have had to deal with "surprise" positive tests with my permit students. Nicest guy & great student one day gets a phone call. "Cocaine"! Swift automatically dumped him out to the street, no negotiation, no retest, no bus ticket home. This is a company prerogative, no Federal law applies.

However you should be able to work with the drug test lab if you do have prescriptions or other circumstances that mitigate the results.

Yeah like errol said. The company has the option to allow you to retest to keep your job, some do, some don't. The lab you submitted your sample to should definitely allow the retest and if its different you can use that to challenge the submission to the clearinghouse I believe.

I have to say, at least you didn't make up a story about your friends tricking you by putting out a bowl of weed gummies. I would request a retest. If you happened to have used marijuana however, remember it can stay in your system and be detected around the 30 day mark. Most other drugs have a 3 or 4 day clearance mark. What drug did they say you tested positive for? It should be written on the copy of the failure paperwork you recieved.
