Drug Screening

Evil HR Lady

Manager wants to allow her to continue working and test her again in 30 days with her continued employment contingent on the results of that test. Of course, our Regional Manager brings it to my attention that we have made this exception in the past, but it was before my time here. Truth be told, I'm all in favor of meeting the needs of the individual--you want flex time, part time, telecommuting, I'm all there. We pre-employment drug screen all applicants.

That’s a weakness of mine that I’ve known for a long time and am working on.

my boss asks us to pick up his lunch for him — Ask a Manager

Ask A Manager

My store manager tends to only hire women, and part of the reason I think is this: He frequently (several times a week) asks one of us to go get lunch for him. You used the term “quid pro quo,&# which I assume you meant in a sexual discrimination or harassment sense, but that term refers to implying that job benefits are contingent upon sexual favors … which isn’t happening here, unless “get his lunch&# is some new sexual slang I haven’t heard yet.
