A: You may have a case for defamation against your nephew. As for the way your employer treated you, it doesn't sound like a HIPPA violation. You should have a lawyer review your employment contract and related documents to determine if you've submitted to drug testing as a condition of employment. The best first step is an Initial Consultation with an Attorney. You can read more about me on my law practice website.
