How can sober living avoid discharging people for false positives
Most people think that their biggest problem in keeping their homes clean is actually finding a way to keep themselves clean. While that may be true, finding a way to avoid “false positives” in the criminal background search is probably the most important issue of all. What do you think of the idea of not allowing employers to discriminate against strong men who take drugs? Does this mean that employers are allowed to let polygraphs and drug tests to get them fired? Some employers have stupid rules that they don’t follow. Some of these rules are meant to protect workers’ rights and others are not. I’m talking about one rule where an employer might have to prove that you had a drug test done to have you work in his business. When a potential employer says, “No drugs or alcohol will be tolerated in my company,” there may be some bad seeds who might take that the wrong way. It’s true that some employers will hire a drug-testing employee just to make a point about the danger of drug use in the workplace. If the individual who hires you have to prove that particular employee had a test, that may be enough for them to fire that particular employee. On the other hand, if the boss tells the employees to clean up their own messes, then there is less need for the drug testing to show up at all. You need a little leeway in how the drug test is done because sometimes it can get misleading. You can still have a positive for a marijuana-based drug, but it could be a case of something else. In other words, positive results are not always a good indicator that you’ve taken illegal drugs. For example, marijuana metabolites from the brain can leave the body a couple of hours after a person has smoked. A positive result on a drug test is a great way to tell somebody that he or she didn’t drink enough alcohol to make that test negative. There are many other ways for a positive test to come out for other illegal drugs besides marijuana. As a practical matter, you’re better off telling your boss that you are going to have a drug test to let them know if you have been using illegal drugs before they hire you. The problem with getting a positive on a drug test is that a lot of other things can be tested for too. So, you’d be better off with a drug test from a private testing company that you can trust and can afford to pay for. For most people, this can be the difference between a life with a drug problem and a life free of drugs. Learning how to avoid discharging people for false positives will help you clean up your life and keep it clean. It’s all part of sober living.
