Pre Employment Drug Screen for First National Bank in Nebraska?

Question by Cherish: Pre employment drug screen for First National Bank in Nebraska?
I am set up for a pre-employment drug screeing for a job that I really want. I live in Omaha, Ne. My question is that if I have legitament prescriptions from my doctor for my pain medication when the tests show that I have it in my system. Will I still be able to get the job. Or will they let me go? Is it okay as long as I have a written presciption from doctor plus my doctor could write a note? Please help I am stressing out. I do not want this to mess this up! I am not abusing my meds I just take them as needed. I have a prescription for them.
I had to comment. Thanks Hot Nurse! I hope you are right because I really want this job! I will call my Doctor tomorrow and have her write something so that I can give it to my new employer…*fingers crossed*

They cannot refuse to hire you for medications your are currently taking under the supervision of a doctor. I would suggest providing a letter to your employer, signed by the doctor before taking the drug test.
