Let’s say that you are faced with the following situation: You must let go of one of your employees, because your business needs to cut down one or two of the staff. You have a really good and highly productive employee who does not have desirable drug testing results, and you have a fairly lazy, lackadaisical employee who always tests clean.
What do you do? It is, indeed, a bit of an intellectual dilemma, because if you did not have the drug testing results, you would definitely choose to retain the more productive employee who has a better attitude and work ethic. Then again, you do not want to gamble with the safety of your other workers or break company policy if your business does not have a multiple strike option for employees who have less than desirable drug testing results.
The first thing you should do is to double check that the data you have for all of your employees is accurate. For that, you may need to switch companies which supply drug test kits and alcohol tests to your business. CMM Technology provides reliable equipment which you can depend upon, and that kind of mental reassurance is something that is definitely worth the investment of change equipment suppliers.
Now, as long as all of your data is coming from a reliable source, like our Lifeloc FC10 or our Medix integrated pro-split cup 6+6, with built in adulterant test, then you can go forward with your decision regarding everyone’s safety and company policy without any further doubt in your mind. Also, double checking test results which you are not sure about is always a good idea, anyway, particularly when it comes to long term business decisions. Make sure that the first time counts with drug test equipment from CMM Technology.
Intellectual dilemmas like these may come across your desk once in a while, but hopefully it doesn’t happen too often, especially now that you have a really good quality equipment supplier. You will always want to make the most out of what you have.
