A Comprehensive Assessment of Employment Drug Testing: Legal Battles Over Delicate Interests
San Diego Law Review
During the past ten years, evidence has mounted that drug and alcohol abuse have critical workplace ramifications.

Employers began paying more attention to data suggesting that their employees might be abusing drugs or alcohol, and that such abuse had, among other things, serious safety and financial implications for their businesses.
