Companies urged to review drug testing policies to fit with ganja reform
Justice Minister Mark Golding is advising employers to review their drug-testing policies to fall in line with the new regulations that now govern the use of ganja in Jamaica.
Some organisations routinely do drug screening for new employees prior to confirmation, and person can be denied employment if prohibited drugs are detected in their bodies. Additionally, some companies also carry out random drug testing of employees, with serious penalties and termination for failed drug tests.
