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.

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.
