I just started a job last week and I had to take a drug test. the company said that I have to pay for the test. Is this legal? My understanding was, if they want the test, they have to pay for it. Unless it comes back positive.
huh

You can expect a lot of such nonsense from such a company. They will make you pay for every little thing during the whole time you have the job. Such as if a machine you're using malfunctions on the job, they might make you pay to get it fixed.

Keep a careful record of everything they make you pay for. Then, when you finally quit or get fired or laid off, write a letter of complaint to the government and include that record.

They should have to pay for it.
We're in the middle of a depression, though, what do you expect? This is worse than the 1929 depression. The only reason people can't wake up to that fact is because about 50% of the country is on food stamps, so the immense bread-lines people saw in 1929 are now put on plastic cards and you can't see them.

Sounds like the kind of employer that will screw you at every opportunity. I'd run away fast.

Everybody wants something for nothing. I don't see anything wrong with paying for your own drug test. Quit your whining.

I don't think you should have to. They require it they pay for it.
