Pre-employment drug testing
Good, brief article on BLR regarding drug testing.
Many jobs require drug testing by law (e.g., truck drivers) and there is an active market for tricks and products to fake out the drug testers, which this article touches on. Courts have in general been very supportive of employers giving drug tests, particularly pre-employment (i.e., compared to incumbents). Key aspects: make sure everyone gets one, and make sure you have either a legal requirement or job-related reason for doing so.
