One of your old college roommates who now lives in New York City just called you. He said he was on vacation this week attending a cross-dressing convention, and got a call from his boss. His boss told him he just lost his job in a layoff along with 50 other employees in the same private-sector company with 850 employees (pre-layoff). His boss told him he was being laid off effective immediately because he refused to take a lie detector test concerning drugs found in his company locker. He also refused to take a drug test because he was afraid that a false positive would result in the state child protection agency taking away custody of his children. Discuss the legal ramifications of this situation.
For example, discuss how the Polygraph Protection Act, Worker Adjustment & Retraining Notification Act, and/or any privacy laws, discrimination laws, safety laws, or state drug testing law(s) might apply.
Demonstrate critical thinking and analysis of the relevant issues and HRM actions, drawing on your background reading and research.
