Requiring Drug testing after an accident, much advice needed
I have a seasonal employee that had a minor injury. Employee did not want to go to the doctor. When asked why... employee stated it was a minor injury and we were making a big deal out of it. Employee also stated that they did not want to go because they had "done drugs in the past". This was said in front of at least five witnesses. I gave employee paperwork to go to WC provider. It is our policy that anyone having an accident must go for treatment and have drug/alcohol testing. We have a no drug/alcohol use policy. The next day employee phoned me stating that he did not have to go see WC provider or have drug testing because he didn't sign our policy acknowledgement. He did receive the policy guide but neglected to sign, therefore we do not have a copy for his file). He stated to me that he would come in and sign our policy acknowledgement if we would let him work. We are not going to let him work until he goes to the WC provider and follows our accident policy. I need help in resolving this issue.
