For example - most of us view discrimination based on race, gender, age as wrong. We can look back on history and think our previous generations were wrong for their views. But there are still groups who are discriminated against, and groups who think that this is ok. So to you - are any forms ok? Why? Why not?

Peep: well said, you hit on some good points. Adhering to job requirements should not be considered discrimination if the person is denied the job, and you certainly would not hire a sex offender to work in a school.
Oh, is that what the drug screen is for? To discriminate against pedophiles? Oh wait, there's no test available for pedophilia or kleptomania or psychopathy. Just a drug screen. How convenient for discrimination.
Well atleast they can use the nsopw website. Drug testing is another thing. At what point does that become discrimination? Some consider it smart business while others feel it is an attack on their personal beliefs.
I did drug testing for years. It's all a ruse and a way for insurance companies to get out of paying for accidents. And it's used for discrimination. It's an invasion of privacy! They literally stick their noses into your pee! And ruin lives.
At the same time what business wants meth heads working for them. I personally buy drug store drug tests for any subcontractor I hire. If it is legal in any state I let them pass, but meth heads and serious drug addicts are a liability.
Do you seriously think that meth heads and "addicts' can hold down a steady job in the first place. It's better if you check their job history and look at their previous projects. Judge by job performance not their private life.
Yes, actually that is why I started testing. Many do hold jobs for long periods of time before they get really addicted then lie about the gap between good job and coming to me. People lie, A DT usually doesn't.
If I weren't so honest, or maybe if someone paid me money, I could pass any drug test that came along. Also, the tests aren't fool proof, mistakes are made. Again, judge the person, not their private life. Some drugs are even real Rx drugs!
I agree in a sense but when MY livelihood is at stake, it is best for me to air on the safe side and test. By the time I can judge the person they may have already cost me my business. Not a chance I am willing to take.
If it's a requirement prior to employment, and it's not met, then it's listed in their job description - the applying party should be aware y they've failed. . The facial tatt's - we have cultural facial tatts in NZ 4 some, it depends on the job.
Beneficial functions are why I put up with them! They is just...crawly. I see what you mean though about pre-judging.
Christians are taught from Day One to not question their religion, and to suspect anyone who has a different take on how the world works. They are threatened with eternal hell if they even consider another point of view. They are ruled through FEAR.

Thanks Tom for yr answer - I understand what you mean - however I was using the commonly used term so that most people understood (as it[s commonly used in this way, to mean what I intended to ask the question about).
I agree re: spiders and roaches, and your final paragraph. Thanks for answering.
