Whitesburg, KY asked in Business Law, Civil Rights and Libel & Slander for Kentucky

Q: Can I sue an OT for accusing me of doing something I didn't do?

I am a recovering addict and I was accused of dropping drugs in the public bathroom that I and every other addict used that day in the clinic. Mind you I screen as part of treatment in front of someone and you would think something would been said if it was there then? Now I know for fact they don't clean between patients and really just because I tested positive how can that make ME the dummy that brought drugs to treatment? (In case you not figured it out yet they weren't mine) I wasnt even confronted in person they wrote me a letter accusing me and discharging me WITHOUT my meds... It's been a rough 2 weeks but I'm making it still is there anything I can do to make them pay. I been in and out of treatment for years and NEVER have I ever seen a more unprofessional bunch.

A: You would likely spend more money out of pocket than you would recover pursuing this bc there are very limited damages.
