  • reporting drug abuse to a company Ohio

    i reported to a company that one of their workers was smoking dope. they called him in office, tested on the spot. he failed, they fired him, and told who called in. i do not work at this company. but this person now knows i ratted him out, this puts me in danger. i am in Ohio.

    What is your question?
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

        This is a question of civil law, and not employment law. It was a very bad idea for the company to tell him who ratted him out, but not entirely illegal.

              No, you don't. It was perhaps foolish of them to let him know who it was but they violated no laws in doing so.

                While they didn't break any laws, I can see there being civil liability on this company IF he retaliates against you, but not until.

                    You haven't suffered any damages. If you do, then you may have a civil cause of action against them for negligence (that's a big may, though.) You can't take legal action just because you're unhappy they told - which I can't imagine why they did.
