I have a pre employment medical screening at Shell. I mentioned on the form that I suffer from depression and am taking SSRI for it. Do you think this could be a valid reason to fail the screening?

That would be a discrimination based on medical condition - if they fail you, go get them for $$$$ which is going to be multiples of what you would have earned for a few years anyway.

How are pre employment medical screenings even legal, unless you’re applying to be a pilot?

Something similar happened to me. My test came back failed and the background check company asked me for proof that I’d been prescribed the meds. I took a picture of the bottle and provided my doctors number. Once verified, they changed the status from failed to pass - I ended up getting the gig!

The urine test came back negative so their protocol is to fail until proven.

Companies can’t fail you for taking prescription drugs

The company in question weeks prior wrote the employee up referencing sexual innuendo due to an accusation of a preferred name.

I’m in a pickle. Currently working in multistate tax and I am not a fan. I just accepted a position with KPMG on their methods team (it sounds like interesting work and I’m sick of compliance).

Loved the people I met with for KPMG, but having my manager push so hard for me is making me have second thoughts. Any input?
