Writing for drug testing auto service employees
R.L. "Bud" Abraham

Many carwash operators are worried they'll lose employees if they implement a strong drug testing program.

This means they operate on the "don't ask, don't tell" philosophy — where co-workers know there is a drug problem but fear being labeled a snitch if they report it.

Do you really want to be known as a carwash that tolerates drug abuse?


Writing against drug testing auto service employees

With an estimated 55 million drug screens performed annually in the United States and some 50 percent of corporate workers forced to "drop trou" as a mandatory condition of employment, suspicionless employee drug testing is an inherent part of the modern workplace.

However, despite its prevalence in the American workforce, the practice is an invasive, ineffective, expensive policy that fails to adequately detect employee impairment or contribute to a safe work environment.
