Drug Testing in the Workplace And Your rights

What happens when one fine day at work you are asked to come for a drug test? Wouldn’t that shock you and make you tensed and worried? What not can happen when you have to face such things in life!

This kind of a situation could happen to anyone anyway. It is all the latest rules coming up in the industrial scenario. But are we really required to take such a test in the big question?

Let us see what the rules and procedures regarding these go as. Many companies are now following this drug testing policy so that they can work in a safer workplace and guarantee safety to employees too.

What does the law say?

We had a cordial discussion with some lawyers and got to know some valid points like, you are eligible to take the test only if your contract for the job state about it and secondly the employer should have a proof of suspicion if that’s reason for the drug test. Hence the ball stays in our court about what should be done.

Thus it is always better to find out from the company lawyers before confirming a drug test to the employees so that it can be validated when the employees do not cooperate for the test in any case.

And some lawyers say that everytime a test needs to be taken, the employee consent must be asked personally even though they will mention it all in the contract while getting appointed.

The privacy of the employee is the priority here.

What are the healthy ways to passing a drug test?

Knowing that you have a decent deadline up to the date of the test you can take the choice of getting healthy and passing the test with ease. This is achieved by the detox methods which are easy to follow and at the same time healthy. These drinks and pills allow the toxins to pass out of the body very effectively and quickly.

Hence the drug test should be considered in a very positive way so that employees get the complete benefit from it.
