The ethical considerations may be a mute point. If an employee has not given permission, I don't believe that any evidence of illegal drug use obtained from their personal work surfaces could be used to take action against them. However, a company that tested equipment owned by the company (same difference) and found such evidence should be able to request that employees that had access to said equipment undergo drug testing without revealing why they ordered the testing.
