Get em boy!!!!!!!!!
The amount of drug use I see is just crazy! The last 7 wk's I've avg 57 hrs a wk because nobody can pass the drug test. We will bring them in as part time with just a pee test. Tell them up front they will have to take a hair test if they go full time. When it comes time to put these guys full time we tell them go take your drug test(hair test) they just walk of. Think about it,make $21.50 an hr with all the hrs you can stand or smoke pot!!! Guess if I was a pot head I would understand.

Yup, now instead we have to pay his "salary" out of our pockets without pee or hair test. I think they should implement the law so that if you want to collect social security or unemployment they should have to take a drug test also since I have to take a drug test to get a job and pay for it.

That's just me though.

Nice job, Troll. Bad part is you may have to fire them again tommorrow 'cause they'll forget what happened last night.

I agree with you, Grumpy Finn. I have mentioned this same test several times around here, and it always get shot down by others. I can tell you this....if a politician would run with that test as part of his or her campaign, I would vote for them in a heartbeat. Sorry so and so's sitting at the house getting wasted and drawing a goverment check...man that pisses me off. Only thing I would change from your idea is the social security part if they are 62 or older and retiring from the workforce. I think if you make it that far, and have worked all your adult life, you can get stoned if you want.

Yep. Funny thing is that all of the tokers will point a finger at the drunks and all of the drunks will point back.

Another interesting observation is that you don't ever really hear about a pot head in an impared driving situation, you never hear about someone getting stoned and starting a bar fight, beating their spouse, etc. It is widely accepted that alcohol will go much farther to reducing your ability to use good judgement, yet you can buy it at most any corner store in the country. I guess the Fed Gov't reserves the right to tell us how we can ruin our lives and how we can't.

I am always surprised at the pot situation. Here at work there are people I won't talk to after break,lunch, afternoon break because they are high. Best part is they try and justify it !!
I work in a machine shop, I guess these people don't care that if you screw up, you can get hurt.
Management tried to impliment a drug testing policy, it was quietly pushed under the table when they realised that a quarter the company would fail the test.
Sad

Everybody pretty much leaves us glue sniffers alone.

There's no place at work for anyone to be under the
influence of ANYTHING! If folks are getting high/drunk on
any job using heavy equipment or power tools they could
hurt or kill themselves or others.

If you fired him for getting high on the job why on earth would the state pay him
unemployment?

"They" won't. Termination for just cause eliminates any and all elgibility for un-employment benefits.

Not necessarily true. In my State, "just cause" implies that the employee was terminated for stealing, fraud, assault, etc. In other words, the employee literally has to be charged with a crime. And God help the employer who files charges only to have them disproven..he will wind up paying through the nose, and may have to rehire him!

Unbelievable as it may sound, while it is illegal to sell, transport, or be in possession of (illegal) drugs, it is not illegal to be "on" them, as long as you are not endangering the welfare of a minor or of the public (ie, operating machinery or a vehicle).

I once worked as a supervisor in a union yard, and some of the things I saw and experienced during my time there flat out scared the crap out of me.

If a person wants a govt handout they should be tested.

If someone performs at their job, doesn't cause problems for others, and contributes to society it is none of your business what they do when they get home at night.

That being said smoking pot on the clock = you are fired. It is stealing, just like getting paid to check THT at work is stealing.

In that case, the second an employer tells an employee to do something before he's on the clock, he is stealing. If he keeps the employee past 8 hours without compensating him, he is stealing.

Trust me, that won't fly in court. I can refer you to a supervisor who was reprimanded and terminated, simply because an employee he fired for your definition of stealing get her job back, with 4-years worth of back pay, to boot.

Sometimes it's better to just let an employee go and put up with the 6-months of paying $150 weekly for your percentage of his unemployment benefits.
