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..

How should I go about this
I see that these people are telling you all of this advice! Guess What !! ITS THE WRONG ADVICE!

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!

That's not true. Almost all employment applications give the employer the right to drug test. But if they didn't it's the company's call to make you moron.

So if I get hurt because my co worker is a drug abuser and I dont want to be considered a snitch, I should be ok with that??? Hell no !!! Im telling and I already told im not gonna get hurt because of a drug abuser .. The people on here calling me a snitch is because one they use drugs two they don't have a stable job and three they don't care about there life

Talk to a detective in your local jurisdiction. Tell them everything you have observed.
They must protect your anonymity, or be sued.
They can figure out the best way to bust this person.
It's a criminal matter. Let the LEOs approach the company.
That's my advice.

Go talk to your safety manager, Human Resources Mgr or your Supervisor... Instead if talking about this on Topix please do something! If it would have been me I would have said something by now! You've been talking about this now for quite sometime now.... Either do something about it or don't, but stop talking about it and do something

dear help,

DONT BE A BITCH! be an adult. no one likes a rat, even sober people. it will come out it was you. who knows, maybe the manager supplies or buys!

politly and calmly let the user/dealer know that you know. if it truely is a danger (like him and his clients nodding off operatting machinery) yiuou need to stress that in your conversation wirath this coworker. however if dude is smoking pot and selling dime bags (10$ bags) and you work at pizza hut, you should probably just quit.

snitches are bitches who end up with stitches.
