quesCan employer take our drug test without our consent?

I am employed in a MNC. I have heard that the company is planning to do a narcotic test on the employees.

Can the company do if we do not give our consent?

  • ans

    Company cannot conduct any narcotic test on employee without his consent. 

    In the case Smt. Selvi vs. State of Karnataka the Supreme Court has held that narco, polygraph and brain mapping tests to be allowed after consent of the person only.
