Description:

For the regular employee any use of drugs is considered an immoral act and therefore, deemed reason enough to negate their right to privacy. To that end, this essay argues that there is no justification for violating an employee's privacy in favor of drug testing because the relevancy of the information is determined by the employer's profit motive which is used to determine the ethical grounds for testing.

From the Paper:

"For the regular employee any use of drugs is considered an immoral act and therefore, according to Michael Cranford, provides the employer with justification to collect and use that information and as such, has been deemed reason enough to negate their right to privacy (112). In contrast drug use by athletes is viewed a potentially profit enhancing behavior. While not conclusive examples, these ideas certainly identify a vast chasm between interpretations of what justifies an employer's rights based on two different types of employees."
