Indiana to drug test those in employment aid program

See also

The Indiana Department of Workforce Development is Indiana’s training program and hiring referral organization for the unemployed.http://www.in.gov/dwd/ Their position is to train and take applications for companies that are hiring. Those people using this state program have been handed a pee cup to aid in the determination of eligibility. http://journalgazette.net/article/20110624/LOCAL/306249941

The department has decided to start drug checks of those in and those entering the program. Their reasoning is this; it is a waste of time and resources to aid an applicant that will later be barred from employment for a failed drug test by the hiring company.

The first offense of failure will result in a six month ban from services. The second offense will be a yearlong ban. The department said they will also refer the offenders to a drug rehab program. There is no word if they will also aid in criminal charges against the offenders for illegal activity.
