Do you agree with employers performing random tobacco testing for employees and applicants?


I work in the health care industry and a new rule for employment, along with the no drugs policy is zero tolerance for tobacco users. This applies to new applicants and random testing for existing employees. My personal feeling is that it is a good rule. It is easy for me to say because I do not use tobacco. It is disheartening to see nurses and other employees lining the streets outside the hospital for their smoke breaks. After all, we are an establishment that promotes health care. Is this not a conflict of interest? What say you?
