    Your employer was in violation for not referring you to an SAP (on page 10)
    http://www.saplist.com/saplist_u/pdf/CEd FMCSA Guidance April 2005.pdf
    IMO , if that employer failed to give you a list of SAP's and you can't be hired because you failed to take a required program because you weren't told it was necessary you could sue that employer for your loss of income. First step is to report that employer to the FMCSA and have them investigate how that employer handled other drivers with positive results.

    So with that being said, could I either chose to sue that company or simply ask them to remove the negative statement on my DAC report? Or is it not that easy?

    This is what you need to worry about. By regulation you can't be hired until you are evaluated by a SAP.

    Now it could be as simple as finding a SAP yourself and having a couple of clean tests. I would still report the company before requesting DAC changes. Using their failure to comply as a reason to remove the DAC would tip them off you know they weren't compliant. Reporting them and having them noncompliant will help your case.

    So, no matter how long ago in the past it was there's no way around it other that to attend a SAP class?

    And also, it doesn't show up on my DAC that I was terminated for drug use, it only states, company policy violation. Does that mean it was also a DOT violation or just specifically a company violation?
