A class action lawsuit has been filed against the United Parcel Service Inc. on behalf of employees in an Employee Assistance Program who had to disclose what prescription medicines they take; employees made to supply urine samples that were tested for legal prescription drugs; workers the company prohibited from using physician-prescribed medicines; workers fired for using those prescriptions; and workers subjected to a hostile work environment for using prescribed medicines.
The discrimination suit was filed by a 17-year veteran employee who alleges that she was fired in January 2003 after a company drug test discovered the anti-anxiety drug Xanax in her system, even though the drug had been prescribed by her doctor.
