AMA Rejects Mass Drug Testing of American Workers

June 25, 1987|United Press International

CHICAGO — The American Medical Assn., winding up its 136th annual meeting, today rejected mass drug screening of employees in private business.

The AMA's policy-making body, the 406-member House of Delegates, adopted a report saying employee drug testing should be limited to people whose work affects the health and safety of others or whose job performance raises reasonable suspicion of impairment.

In the past, the AMA has not endorsed random testing of civilian airline pilots and it endorsed testing of railroad crews only under limited circumstances.
