City of Atlanta employee fired twice, claims termination was wrongful

- Pamela Hill says the actions have nothing to do with her job performance. Instead, she claims the actions are the result of the medication that she has to take. 

Hill, who was the first supervisor to be promoted to manager in her old division, says there is an ingredient in her prescription that can cause a false positive for marijuana each time she is required to submit a urine sample. 

It first happened in 2011. Hill gathered documents including information from her doctor to challenge the termination. 

An independent board reviewed the firing, ordered her return to work with back pay.

Hill says she is going through the same thing all over again right now. She has been out of work for nearly four months and her bills are coming in. She is waiting for a second appeals hearing to take place so she can submit her medical evidence all over again. 

A spokesperson for Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms says the city is unable to discuss publicly the supervisor's situation because it is a personnel matter.
