Workplace drug testing is a tool that many companies use for hiring new employees and to ensure the safety of workers and reputation of the business.
A worker with a drug habit may be an unreliable, unsafe worker. While many have come to accept this workplace drug testing as the norm, there are concerns over the ethics and practices.
Some employees may feel unfairly singled out from the rest of the workforce and fear discrimination. If this is the current state for workers with recreational drug habits, the problem is worse for HIV-positive employees.
