Is this test handled correctly?: Answer

Answer: No. While a reasonable suspicion test is at the supervisor’s discretion, it should not be done on a whim. It may not be based on a gut feeling that someone is under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or only on a rumor that someone has been using drugs. To be fair to everyone involved, supervisors need to be able to justify the reason for the test through documented patterns or observations of unsafe or unusual behavior.
