The frightening truth is that Drug-abusers cost American employers more than $300 billion dollars annually in lost productivity, sick time, employee theft, workplace accidents, workplace violence, workman’s compensation, law suits, and insurance claims. According to O.S.H.A. 65% of all work related accidents are the direct result of substance abuse. According to the D.E.A. 70% of drug users are employed and 35% of all cocaine users sell drugs to co-workers to support their own habit. With Courts increasingly holding employers responsible for the actions of employees under the influence of drugs and alcohol, it is important to put an effective drug-awareness program in place showing you are serious about keeping your company Drug-Free.

The courts have generally agreed that the use of trained narcotics dogs to sniff objects, as opposed to people, is not a search within the meaning of the Fourth Amendment and thus requires no level of suspicion. School officials therefore may use trained narcotics dogs to sniff objects that are not affixed to, or carried by, an individual student, such as lockers, desks, student vehicles parked in school parking lots, or any articles of personal property that have been discarded or abandoned. If the dog alerts them to a particular locker or vehicle, school officials then will have satisfied the reasonable suspicion requirement that justifies a more thorough search to determine whether in fact drugs are present.
