Alberta Court of Appeal: Drug Testing Upheld at Construction Workplaces

Citing the overriding importance of ensuring workplace safety, the Alberta Court of Appeal has ruled that mandatory drug testing of employees at Alberta construction sites does not infringe on individual human rights.

The Appeal Court decision overruled a Queen's Bench judge's finding that the termination of a construction employee who had tested positive for marijuana was discriminatory.
