    Thanks for responding. Where I worked we had high level architecture, design, marketing, sales, and we had manufacturing that used large dangerous sophisticated computer controlled machines and hand assembly. So drugs including alcohol could be a problem. So the company was considering starting drug testing. As a manager, I thought this would be stupid since employment should be based on performance and performance is easily evaluated. I expressed my views, dangerous. (In fact there are small keyboard at the door evaluation of an employee that can be implemented, that functions better for the company than drug testing.) Weeks later drug testing was implemented. I had to go to training on how to explain to my group how good this was going to be. During the training the pro drug testing managers were pro because they didn’t like the sinful drug culture, others like me just cared about performance. So there were basically three types: 1) Those that didn’t think it would work and would be a waste. 2) Those that wanted to stop the sinfulness. 3) And a few that thought it would work. Note, ‘beer’ was not tested for. The company that sold the testing to our company, claiming lower costs, higher productivity, etc., etc. started the testing. Several high level engineers resigned and formed a consulting firm before testing began and we hired them at effectively higher pay than they were getting. My boss tested positive for the prescription drugs he needed. He was tested over and over for this reason. It’s very embarrassing to be pulled from a meeting to have to go pee in a way to verify that it was fresh pee. However, we were to get a report about how much performance improved and how much money was saved in 6 months, etc. Nothing was ever provided about how much drug testing improved our company. After about a year and a half drug testing was stopped. No reason ever given. My guess was that it was too expensive to catch sinners. This was especially obvious when some of the sinners were consultants sitting in the next office.
    BTY, worker bees and managers below the rank of VP had exactly the same health insurance. Above VP the official answer on health insurance was that they had exactly the same health insurance. Not exactly a lie, just obfuscation, since they also had an additional separate health policy that gave the gold plating that you mentioned. Get it, the same policy. The additional gold one is never to be mentioned.

    So, Badmutha, what is your personal experience with gold plated insurance and drugs, alcohol etc., in the workplace?

    Well, Although I don't own my company, I do work from home, and my HQ are far, far away. That said, I do drink, and I smoke a little pot once in a while, but I absolutely do not do it on the job, EVER!

    This kind of thing used to be pretty common. I think it's pretty lame that I can't drink beer on my lunch break, it's not like a few beers means you're drunk or even buzzed.

    Actually the term "a few" usually refers to 3 or more, 3 beers in an hr, you are legally drunk.

    I drink at work all the time. Calms me down before landing the plane. You wouldn't want me nervous, would you?
