12.29.2351 hours ago1. The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA)is perhaps the most important federal civil rights legislation that affects employers when developing and implementing drug-free workplace policies. It prohibits all U.S. employers with more than 15 employees from discriminating against qualified job applicants and employees because of a physical disability. The ADA does not, in any way, prohibit employers from having a drug-free workplace policy, nor does it provide any special protection to individuals who are currently using illegal drugs. However, it does make it illegal for employers to discriminate against recovering alcoholics and drug users who have already sought treatment for their addiction. Under the terms of the ADA: 1. Employers cannot fire, refuse to hire, or refuse to promote someone simply because she or he has a history of substance use. 2. Employers also cannot fire, refuse to hire, or refuse to promote employees merely because they are enrolled in a drug or alcohol rehabil...

12.29.2352 hours ago1. Eighteen states—along with two individuals—argued before the U.S. Supreme Court that, because federal lawmakers reduced the mandate’s shared responsibility payment to $0 through the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the individual mandate is unconstitutional. This argument was based on the Supreme Court’s 2012 ruling that the individual mandate was a tax. If the shared responsibility payment is $0, the individual mandate generates no money and therefore cannot be a tax, the challengers argued. The challengers also argued the rest of the health law cannot be “severed” from the individual mandate and therefore the entire ACA is unconstitutional. Twenty-one states, along with the House of Representatives, defended the federal law, arguing that the individual mandate is constitutional—and that it is severable from the rest of the ACA if the Supreme Court were to rule that the mandate is unconstitutional. These states also challenged whether the states and individuals filing the lawsuit had st...
