My fiancee just admitted that he has a problem with coke and perks and that he needs help. He is affraid that if he goes into rehab that his work will fire him. He loves where is working but is affraid that he won’t have a job if he goes for help. Is there any laws protecting peoples jobs in this type of situation? Or is there something else he can do? We live in Philadelphia, PA.

he doesn’t have to tell anyone he is getting help, and those helping him are prevented by law from divulging his information. As long as he is doing his job well, and they are happy with his performance there should be no issue.
