The misuse of drugs in the work
place is well publicized. Drugs
are costing the American business community billions of dollars every
year. Consider loss of
productivity, medical expenses, absenteeism and work place crime related
to drug abuse; all affecting your bottom line.
Drug abuse is not isolated to a few “types” of employees or
even a certain type of company. They
are as prevalent on Main Street as they are on Wall Street.
There are 3 frequently cited reasons that constitute reasonable grounds:
Safety… where employees are
directly responsible for the well-being and safety of others.
Safety… a major cause of accidents
that can lead to injuries and possibly legal action for liability and
for Duty… failure to produce
properly made products can endanger the reputation of a company.
to Drug Test?
Pre-employment is the most prevalent use of drug testing;
however, testing current employees is on the increase.
It may be in response to a specific incident for the purpose of
taking punitive action or initiating rehabilitation.
The 1st step would be to develop a comprehensive policy
as required by the DRUG FREE WORK PLACE ACT OF 1991. Legal counsel is strongly advised.
