Drug testing employees

Sometimes, in trying to deal with a problem, one creates a far bigger one.

On Thursday, the whole workplace was drug & alcohol tested, after an incident the previous day that led to two 'workers' being suspended.

As a result, we now have 60% of the full time workers suspended pending further disciplinary action. The part timers have yet to be tested and I anticipate a higher percentage of them testing positive.

Not a good look when everyone is driving and using heavy machinery.

They should have been random testing, as permitted by contract. Instead, it's a test before you are hired and then never again- at least until last Thursday. So they thought they could get away with it.
