I see that these people are telling you all of this advice! Guess What !! ITS THE WRONG ADVICE!I work at a factory. And I know of a coworker that does drugs at work and sells drugs at work also, I dont know how to tell my employer.. I dont want him to know I told on him but his a big hazard to my job and to the company .. I thought about sending a anonymous email to the company but I dont know if it would work?? How should I go about this
If you tell your employer that this man is doing drugs, and the company sends this man to get a drug test and the man fails the drug test ,....... THE MAN CAN SUE THE WHOLE FACTORY!!!!!!
It is ILLEGAL TO DRUG TEST A EMPLOYEE DUE TO HEARSAY!!! That's right! While it is very difficult to prove hearsay , this topix post is enough for him to use as evidence that his drug test was hearsay!
AT ANY JOB , ANYWHERE, NO MATTER WHAT .... UNLESS IT AFFECTS THE IMMEDIATE SAFETY OF OTHERS ... IT IS ILLEGAL TO DRUG TEST A WORKER BECAUSE SOMEONE SAID HE WAS ON DRUGS!!!!!!
So ... Lets say that this guy is working and his job really does not affect the safety of anyone in the plant, then it would be illegal to drug test him. So if he is working on a machine that NO ONE ELSE IS AROUND... Or if he is doing something BY HIMSELF... They can't drug test him!
NOW THEY PROBABLY WILL DRUG TEST HIM, but im saying that IT IS ILLEGAL!
If I was the man and I got drug tested at the factory .... and if I knew that this was on Topix , I would file a lawsuit against the company!
All he has to do is ask " Why Are You Drug Testing Me "
If the company says that he was randomly selected , then I would ask for the print out of the selection! If they refused to give it to me .... I would document that or get them to sign something saying that they can not give him a print out! Also , before I even had the conversation with them ... I would tape record the conversation!
So if they could not give me a print out of the random selection , they could also say that they suspected you! You can drug test for reasonable suspicion. And They may use this as their excuse!
Although it is very difficult to prove that they drug tested you on hearsay , if they can not provide any evidence of the reason they drug tested you ... you have a legit chance of getting them!
But yeah , If you tell the employer you are going to be labeled a snitch in the whole plant and also .... THEY CAN NOT DRUG TEST SOMEONE BECAUSE OF HEARSAY!
