My work accused me of drinking on the job

Now I am a bartender so it is around me. It’s not like I’m bringing in alcohol from the outside but my management team accused me of drinking on the job and made me go take a breathalyzer test after my shift. The results came back .000, no alcohol at all. Now I’m not allowed to return to work until the “investigation” process is complete.

This was also my first shift back from paternity leave. My wife and I just had our first baby two weeks ago.

Has anyone had something like this happen to them?

Stark looking for a new job.

Notice how I said job, not career.

Because I was being/feeling sluggish from the lack of sleep that comes with having a newborn.

Sounds like you work at a corporate owned eatery. I could go for some crispy beef from Cheesecake Factory today.

If you blew a .000, what other investigation needs to be done. You were either drinking, or not. Are they now pushing for a blood test to see what other shite is in your system? Also sounds like someone wants to get rid of you for some reason, and they just assumed everyone takes a drink behind the bar so they'd have an easy way to fire you. As another poster said, go work somewhere else before you get fired so you can leave on your terms.

By the way, congrats on the lil sex trophy

First step is admitting you have a problem

I'd probably be drinking regularly if I was in this situation. Can't blame them for assuming

I thought people become bartenders so they CAN DRINK ON THE JOB??!!

Isn’t that the point?

Seems like at the least you don't have a lot of rapport and support from your management team. Can't be an enjoyable work environment, I'd look for another job.
