1. Under what circumstances can an employer administer a drug test?
For legal and other reasons, it is important to include some provision in an employee handbook on the subject of drugs and alcohol in the workplace.
2. Should an employer have a probationary period for new employees?
The establishment of an initial period of employment which is described as one during which the performance of a new employee is scrutinized and evaluated, at the end of which time he becomes a "regular employee," is pointless and possibly problematic legally.
