Frequently Asked Questions about Drug and Alcohol Testing in Ontario
- Is it okay to drug test if we don't have a drug testing policy in place?
- Not a good idea from a liability perspective. Just think about what you will do if the person tests positive. Your best practice and to be safe from liability is to have a drug free workplace policy prior to drug testing employees. Custom written drug testing policies are available from US Drug Test Centers.
- Can I fire an employee for being on drugs or for suspecting they are on drugs?
- You should have a company drug free workplace policy stating the consequences of a positive drug test. You can fire an employee for a violation of your company policy. It is not a best practice to fire someone based on suspicion of drug use. Always check with your human resources and/or legal departments.
- With all this Medical Marijuana, Can I Maintain a Drug Free Workplace?
- Yes, with medical and recreational marijuana, employers still need to maintain drug free workplace programs. Various federal laws require all employers to provide a safe and healthy work environment and those with certain safety-sensitive jobs or who have federal contracts or grants to maintain a drug-free workplace. Employers whose businesses are related to public safety and security must be able to ensure their employees are not impaired while at work. Otherwise, employers face litigation of a different sort: lawsuits caused by impaired employees that involve injuries or deaths among fellow employees or the general public.
- In States with medical and/or recreational marijuana, employers may choose whether to make an exception for medical marijuana use. But, if that is an exception that an employer decides to make, it must be an exception that is applied after a thoughtful consideration of all the safety and business risks involved and done in a manner in which the employer does not unnecessarily expose itself to potential claims for discrimination (particularly if the exception is granted to some but not all employees).
Drug-Free Workplace Policy and Programs
Employers need to establish a program that will ensure that all employees are not in any potential danger arising from injuries or accident due to alcohol and drug misuse. It is every employer’s duty to ensure a safe and healthful working condition for all employees. Employees must take reasonable care for their own health and safety and that of others, and cooperate with the employer with respect to action taken by the employer to comply with company alcohol and drug policy regulations.
