My employer cut my hours at work and I think that medical marijuana is the reason why.
There was a rumor going around the office that I was using recreational drugs.
The boss called me into his office and started asking questions. I didn’t want to lie, so I just closed the fact that I was in fact a medical marijuana user. I had a legal prescription from my doctor and I never used medical marijuana while I was at work. My boss seemed annoyed when I told him the truth. I honestly did not think that he could punish me since the doctor prescribed medical marijuana to me. Well, as it turns out, my boss can do anything that he wants. About three weeks after the incident occurred, my hours at the office were cut in half. I was a full-time employee for three years, working 40 hours every week. After the incident with medical marijuana, my hours were cut down to 24 hours each week. I no longer qualify for any full-time benefits like Vision, Dental, PTO, or holiday pay. When I saw the schedule, I was very upset. I made an appointment to speak with my boss. The guy told me that he had to cut back on some employees and I was just unlucky. There’s absolutely no way that can be the truth. I spoke with a lawyer and I spoke with the human resources department. There really isn’t anything that can be done unless I have real and actual proof that marijuana was the reason for the cut back.
