I would only see a problem if you were high. But since you're not...enjoy your pee!
When I was being trained as a medical assistant a couple months ago, we learned that the person peeing and you have to be in the same room. You don't necessarily have to stare at them, but definitely the same room. And yes, you can't have belongings or flush the toilet or wash your hands until the person has the specimen.
You mean to say you were in the washroom... by yourself... right??
Better to pee in a cup in front of a stranger than get fired for refusing to take a drug test. Sure it's uncomfortable but if you haven't taken anything you've got nothing to hide.
The employer didn't force the employee to disrobe, as the employee always maintained the right to refuse the drug test, although it would likely cost him his job. Furthermore, whether or not an employer can legally have a third party monitoring the specimen collection varies by job type as well as jurisdiction, and we know neither of these things here. But hey, OP, if you feel like you had your rights violated, go see a lawyer, who would actually know the law where you live.
Yeah that's what I tell my boss I got allergies 365 days a year. I really really do
