What do you think - Should employers have the right to mandatory drug screen if recreational marijuana use is legal? #employmentlaw   #drugscreening   #hiring   #jobseekers   #employers   #jobs

That would unfortunately work the same for coffee but in the inverse. Habitual coffee drinkers who don't "get their fix" have diminished problem solving, decreased reaction time, less environmental awareness, and a reduced ability to anticipate the consequences of choices. The best response to those facts, in a very real way, would be to allow employers to hire and fire based on coffee drinking habits. The only apparent difference is the legality of the substance. The best argument that could be made is that an employer should be able to fire or refuse to hire on the basis of not wanting an employee who could be arrested and therefore be unable to work due to regular participation in an illegal activity. Otherwise, everything should be performance based. Anyone who engages in performance-impacting activities in situations where their performance isn't relevant to the job, i.e. personal/private time, shouldn't have that held against them if they perform flawlessly when it counts.

hmm, if only it were true.... over the last 10 years tech companies have come to the DFW area and then returned to silicon valley. with the last major layoff from TI a year ago, and the major layoffs at RIM, all the supporting tech companies as well as the talent pool have left DFW like a sinking ship. there may be a lot of IT and related fields going on, but for the hard core R&D and product development, DFW is a dead zone....

Simplicity & Authenticity' in Hiring Technology Talent

My Frenchies, Tank & Gus LOVE going to the doctor! We've been patients of Cornerstone Animal Clinic since Tank was 8 weeks old & Gus, who we adopted at 7 months old. The entire staff is so refreshing, it feels like you're taking your kiddos to a loving, safe, and fun dog park. We are long-time, loyal fans of the Cornerstone team!
