Rethinking Drug Testing

Lewis Maltby insists drug testing is a waste of money and doesn't make the workplace any safer. His belief runs contrary to pre-employment policies most large corporations and manufacturers have adopted over the past 20 years or so. Maltby is president of the National Workrights Institute and author of a newly released book called "Can They Do That? Retaking Our Fundamental Rights in the Workplace." He claims employers have been duped into believing that spending money on drug screens is a wise investment. "If a drug test tells you someone was coming to work stoned, it would be great in helping safety and productivity, but it doesn't tell you that," says Maltby, a former manufacturing executive and founder of the American Civil Liberties Union's National Workplace Rights Office. "It just tells you that the employee ingested some amount of a particular drug at some undetermined point in time." Maltby says on-the-job impairment tests are more effective alternatives to drug testing because they measure the worker's current state of alertness (see Impairment Tests as a Drug-Screen Alternative). Of course, drug-testing advocates contend substance-abuse screening is a cost-effective way to reduce on-the-job accidents, improve productivity and cut absenteeism
