Why is it that employers feel it's necessary to make someone do an urinalysis before hiring them? It just seems a bit invasive to me. I can
understand doing it if someone is showing up to work obviously under the influence or if someone is injured at work. That makes sense to me. However,
don't we all deserve the benefit of the doubt? What should it matter to an employer what an employee does on his own time? If a person has no
criminal record, why should it be assumed that they may be doing illegal drugs?
I just felt like a rant, honestly. I don't understand why they spend the money to drug test people without any probably cause.
If somebody is caught using drugs at work, or shows up to work under the influence then, by all means, fire them, just as you would if they were
drinking at work. You don't make someone do a breathalyzer as part of the application process, why make someone do a urinalysis?
