Abstract

The case for the employer′s right to test for substance abuse is set out. Abuse is an ever‐present and expensive problem, and screening should be seen as comparable to medical assessments for suitability of employment in particular categories of work or hazardous environments. Prevention of abuse requires early recognition of those at risk and appropriate assistance. Guidelines are offered on when and how to test.
