Should business who terminate sober employees clean from illegal substances be able to change over workers comp insurance policies to save money? This recently happened at Lin Jarrett Heating and Cooling to save money on liabilities for an injured worker. An employee complianed about the illegal substances on vans and was evetually forced out the door, majority ruling, as no place was available on a drug free van. After the insurance was changed an employee severed the tip of his finger off from the top knuckle up. This worked out right on time to protect the company from any liabilities they were responsible for. If the injured worker produces a dirty urine, this saves any lawsuits or compensation the company MAY have to pay. Why is this? Is there money troubles? Is an office with 3 secretaries, one being the owner's daughter making much, much, more than a service tech working as she pleases the reason for sly changes? I dont think worker's comp companies raise insurance rates much if a man gets injured and shows a negative drug screen on a spur of the moment test when an injury happens. Companies, check with your insurance carriers, ask the question so you dont have to be shady and sneaky to save money.
