Drug free work zone rules are tied to the federal workman's comp laws. Companies that have to carry that coverage use the random screening to be sure that their employees are following written fully explained policies. This protects the company from liability and sky high rates resulting from the actions of an employee under the influence and also protects fellow employees from the same. Rules include ALL employees on the premises whether you are in the plant, warehouse, or the office. it would be unfair and probably illegal to establish two sets of rules. YOU are aware of the drug policies when YOU hire in, YOU are given a booklet with the rules in plain writing, normally YOU sit through a yearly meeting going over those rules again, and YOU sign a piece of paper stating YOU know those rules and understand them and the consequences for breaking them. If YOU get caught and fired, there is no one to blame but YOURSELF. The choice is YOUR'S: Either plan to follow the rules or don't apply in a company that has a drug policy. Very simple.
