Is it Ever Appropriate for Employers to Drug-Test Employees?
On the June 15, 2014 edition of Work with Marty Nemko: Many people accept that employers have the right to drug-test employees and prospective employees. But there are two sides to the issue.
My wife, Barbara Nemko, and I will do a switch-sides-in-the-middle debate. In the first half of the debate, I'll argue that employers--with some limitations--should have that right. In the middle of the debate, I'll take the position that employers don't have that right, ever.
Plus, as usual, you can call in for a 3-Minute Workover. Whatever career conundrum is besetting you or someone you love, I can usually help you take at least a baby step forward.
Work with Marty Nemko is heard every Sunday from 11 AM to noon on KALW, 91.7 FM in San Francisco and worldwide on kalw.org. The podcast is available for a week on the NPR site and in perpetuity on this page.
