WHOA!! What in the actual fuck is wrong with your boss?! It's been a long time since my jaw has dropped at an FML!
Your boss is an asshole! There has to be someone you can contact because he is out of line.
if op lives in a "right to work" state ( I think it's called ) then op can indeed be fired for no reason . if op's boss felt as if he/she didnt want op working for them then op's boss can legally show him the door . NC has those laws and it has happened to me . however , it is illegal for a previous employer to slander your name to prevent you from finding other work . I would press charges . that's defamation or ( whatever you call it ) I think .
49 has it right. Right to work means the unions can't force you to join to work at a business with union workers, at will is the removal of the requirement of cause to fire a worker. In neither case is it legal to slander a worker to a prospective new employer or file untrue information in their release forms (pink slip).
that's actually slander. he can get in a lot of trouble for that and OP can get a huge pay out for that! especially since OP was fired and lost another job because of the lie. The boss had a right to fire OP because you can be fired for any reason in NYC (as long as its not a discriminatory reason). However the boss can not slander OP and cause them not to get another job due to a lie! Especially an accusation as strong as DRUGS!!! somebody is gonna get the pants sued off them! OP would be a fool not to sue!
I'm pretty sure it's illegal for a previous work place to tell other potential work places lies like that. I know that some place wanting to hire you can call old work places but if they say anything bad about you it isn't legal. They can say you were fire for not meeting standards or some other term but they can't lie or be too specific by saying bad things. Maybe look to a work union for help?
My old HR manager actually told me they can't even say if you were fired or quit. All they can say is how long you worked there. If they give any information about any performance reviews or anything else, negative or positive doesn't matter, they are liable to be sued.
A boss is not aloud to tell a prosctive employer what you have been fired for. I would call the fair labor board and report them. Talk to the shop you were going to work at. They will know you can't not give a reason for being fired so they might still hirer you. An employer can only say if they would hire you. But please report this asshat for they will not do this again

Yeah - Pretty sure that's within bounds for a legal case, in your favor. Complete and utter dick move on his part so I agree that your life sucks - But I also gave you +1 for YDI because you told your boss where you were going to be going. Never tell your boss where your next place of employment is, especially if you plan to leave to go there.
The boss overreacted to OP's asshat move. Once you start that bargaining crap, even if they up the pay to keep you, they don't trust you anymore because they know you will probably do that again. OP should have just given their notice. If the boss asks why, then go ahead and tell them it is for more money and let them decide whether to offer more.
70 - For all we know the OP let the boss know he was in a financial trouble, needed a raise and said he was looking for a job. If this is the case I don't see how it was unprofessional. It gave his current boss a last chance not to have to hire someone new and gave plenty of notice this might happen. There is a lot of time and expenses tied up with hiring new people.
When a new grocery store in town opened, the one meat department guy at my job was offered a position by them that started out at a higher wage. He let our company know that their competitor was offering more for his years of service and skills. They raised his wages to match because they wanted to keep him on board. So this can work if the employee is valuable enough. The boss in this situation was out of line and should have just said no and left it to the OP to decide where to work or just fired them and left it at that.
You could still call the other shop and tell them your boss lied and that you're willing to take a drug test to prove it.
Won't work. All you have to do to pass a drug test is abstain from the drug long enough for it to leave your system. Vicodin I know you will test for it 5 days after the last pill. On the 6th day its out if the system. You can time your use to clean the system, pass, and take it again. The new employer needs to see the proof if a failed drug test, the paper after the test showing he had xyz drug. Which does not exist.
