Alberta Information and Privacy Commissioner Frank Work isn't being shy about letting his feelings be known about random drug testing in the workplace, according to the Canadian Press:
Alberta's privacy commissioner concerned about random on-the-job drug testing - Yahoo! News:
"EDMONTON (CP) - Any plan by Alberta to legislate random workplace drug and alcohol testing must be based on hard evidence that testing makes worksites safer, says the province's privacy commissioner.
Frank Work made the point to Human Resources Minister Mike Cardinal in a letter earlier this month after a government-appointed committee recommended that random testing be approved.
'Any consideration of legislative change must be preceded by a thorough study of the evidence on drug and alcohol testing and workplace safety,' Work said in the letter, obtained by The Canadian Press.
'At this point, it is not even clear to what extent drug and alcohol impairment plays a role in workplace accidents. This is a classic case of the need for solid, evidence-based decision making.'..."
