i hired a new person as a helper for work, and after car pooling i found a pill in the seat where he had been sitting. it is a long, oval, white pill and has a symbol on 1 side of what looks to be a cirle with either an arrow or check-mark type shape, slashing through the circle, on an angle. i cant find this image on a pill anywhere online and would just like to know what it is before confronting him.
There are quite a few oval white pills that are pretty innocuous, like zyrtec. There is no way we can check it here without numbers or letters, we don't have logo id. I don't recognize that logo as the symbol of any manufacturer I know, but someone else might. Your pharmacist may be able to help you. In the USA all prescription and over the counter medications have to have a marking on it that identifies what it is. In most cases that's not just a logo but a number. This doesn't apply to nutritional supplements however.
Do you have reason to think this person is impaired on the job? If not, then I wouldnt make a big deal out of confronting him. People dont have to disclose personal health information to their employers and you do not want to open yourself to a discrimination complaint. As Kaismama mentions, there are a lot of large white pills that may be nothing more than a pill for disease like diabetes, GERD, high blood pressure etc. This pill doesnt scream "opioid" or "narcotic" to me but it could also be a possibility (Iam not familiar with that logo mark you describe). Unless you have reason to feel he is working impaired (and finding a pill is not a reason enough) I wouldnt say much more than "Hey, I found this pill in the seat after you got out of the vehicle. Is it yours?" and leave it at that. He may open up and tell you what it is for or he may not.
Many people take medications that they need food in their stomach to take or something they take "as needed" and men tend to carry their meds in their pockets. Since there is only a logo and not identifying letters or numbers, it may be a supplement (all drugs in the US have to have identifying code numbers, letters or both. Many have logos but that just indicates manufacturer-there needs to be a code of letters, numbers or a combination of both to tell what drug it is by that manufacturer) Supplements like vitamins, minerals and dietary supplements do not need identifiers and may have just a logo or may have absolutely no markings at all. I would caution you about making a big deal out of it unless you have other reasons to be thinking he is working impaired. Some people are very private about health issues and will make a big deal out of what they perceive as discrimination against them having health issues. As an employer, you have the right to drug test but you must test ALL your workers and it has to be a policy to do so.
It to me sounds like a hydroxycut witch is a dietary supplement and helps with work out energy boost. I don't know if the pic will com up but u should be able to go to the link search images for what hydroxycut pills look like see if that's what u found. U can just type onwhat does hydroxycut pill look like then when it comes up on the header click on images hope this help.
