A: Please remember this is a public forum and you could be posting things today that you regret tomorrow. Sorry to hear that you are having these problems. Your actual question: "Can I get a job still?" cannot be answered with the information you provided, and it calls for predicting the future, even an attorney cannot do that. If you had a government position, it is difficult to imagine that you were there one day and gone the next without any kind of investigation, you have certain rights with respect to government jobs, whether with the DEA or with public education. There is almost always a review and investigation under the circumstances you mentioned. You have the right to have a "Skully" hearing before discipline or termination is imposed. If you were a member of a union, you should contact them and see what can be done. Otherwise, you should contact an employment attorney specializing in government positions (like police or fire) and determine what can be done.
