Imperial’s drug policy salvaged on appeal?

Some testing is a proper job requirement
|Canadian Employment Law Today

Ontario’s highest court has partly vindicated Imperial Oil in its attempt to set up a strict workplace policy on alcohol and drug use.

The policy required that all employees in safety-sensitive jobs inform Imperial of their substance abuse, even if the abuse had occurred in the past. In compliance with the policy, Martin Entrop disclosed that he once had a drinking problem, but added that he had not consumed alcohol for seven years.

Because he was in one of the enumerated safety-sensitive jobs, Imperial transferred him into a more junior position.
