Drug Test Leads to Employee Payout, Fauci Predicts Increase in Employee Vaccine Mandates, and What to do When Employee Turnover Increases

In today’s Weekend Roundup, discover how a failed drug test leaves employee with six-figure payout, why Fauci predicts a boost in employer vaccination mandates, and where to look when employee turnover increases.  Click the headlines below to learn more!

Employee Flunks Drug Test­–Then Collects Six-Figure Payout

Be careful how you respond if an employee flunks a drug test. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) just resolved a lawsuit it filed against an employer. It had accused the employer of responding to an employee’s two positive drug tests in a way that violated the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Why Fauci Predicts a Boost in Employer Vaccine Mandates

After months of encouraging employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19 with education campaigns, reminders, paid time off and more, many employers are taking the next step: requiring all or some of their workers to get inoculated.

The movement comes as vaccine rates wane and the Delta variant spreads quickly across the nation, posing big problems because the variant is more transmissible and potentially more deadly than the original strand. President Biden, too, recently called on more employers to mandate vaccines.

Where to Look When Employee Turnover Rates Start Climbing
