We are at a road block here. YES there is a law on the federal level protecting this man from being fired for refusing to fill BC scripts I got that. In what way is this law being broken if the reason given for termination has nothing to do with not filling BC scripts? Just because the fired employee claims violation does NOT mean that there was a violation. The person claiming that rights were violated would have to prove that their refusal to fill resulted in their termination.
Therefore, it might be very hard to prove that rights were violated in this case, because there are MANY MANY valisd reasons for termination, especially in the present economy. I am positive that not filling BC scripts would result in a much lower profit for the owner, which could be shown as a reason he had to lay off employees. Do you see my point here?
Maybe I should post in english.
It doesnt matter what reason the business owner gives, or whether he gets sued or not. The law is there to protect the employee from being fired. This is a state by state law, not federal.
My question, which has NO ROADBLOCKS is why have this law?
I am NOT asking whether it is easy for the business owner to lie.
I am not asking whether it is easy for the business owner to break the law and said he didn't.
I am not asking whether the burden of proof is on the employee.
I am asking why there is such a law.
You keep on saying that it would be easy for the business owner to fire the employee. Not my point at all. The point is that in 24 states, the employee is protected by law.
