... them on return to work
be honest if they drug test you it may show up but i can't believe they could let you go for an anti-depressant unless there is more to your story i worked in a dental office for 25 years while taking an anti-depressant with no problem i was honest and up front about it but it was a small office and we were like family(that is until i had a breakdown) then everything was a different story. best of luck. missy
School or Transit operator? If it's Transit and you operate in a city, more than likely you are a Union member? There is an agreement between the Amalgamated Transit Union and its' "employer" that all operators must sign a formal document that states what medications you are taking. Regardless of the type of med. If it's a medication that comes with the standard warning "do not take this medication while driving or operating heavy machinery" until you know how you react to it. It is a MUST that the doctor sign off on that document. On the other hand, if you operate a school bus, some not all, school districts request that you inform them of any meds that may affect your driving ability. If your employer did not give you this form, I would be upfront with them and have a note from the doctor that states it is safe for you to drive while on this medication. If it isn't required, and you feel safe to operate a bus, at least have the doctor add to your medical file it is safe for you to resume operating buses. As an operator, you know that if something (God forbid) happened and someone got hurt on your bus, not only your employer, but you personally can be sued if you were at fault. Do your best to cover your ass. You are subject to yearly, random, post accident, and suspicion testing. People are sue happy. Good luck to you and wishing you the best in your job. It sure is a high stress one at that!
