A construction company has sacked three workers who failed drugs tests.
Have your say
It's just another way to get rid of workers without giving them redundancy and clearing themselves of tribunals.
Well done Thomas Armstrong group. Posts have question the effects of alcohol and that this is not tested as the drug use is. The fact is that the company set up a no tolerance drugs policy, tested, warned, retested then sacked employees who couldn't/wouldn't comply. End of. The alcohol question may be debated fully in time - those complaining here may lead this to being compulsory (stabbing themselves in the back?) - but these guys sacked themselves.
