Timely(?) article on kuro5hin.org that basically boils down to a “where does it end?” question on personal privacy vis a vis employment.
I would never consent to a contract with verbiage like:
I understand that my employment may be terminated [if I test positive], if I refuse to consent to testing or to a search, [or if it looks like I cheated the test]
…and yet somehow in my naive “must-hang-on-to-job-for-dear-life” frame of mind, I agreed to take on-call rotations. Meaning that I essentially
- surrendered my “home as sanctuary” status
- completely de-valued any “extra” or out-of-office work that I might have otherwise chosen to do
- agreed to take on stress in excess of what I think I can handle
- did not think through the series of ethical conundra that comprise “after hours technical support”
As I type this, the little black company-issue Motorola rings. And my relaxing evening after a full day of work plunges me right back into the colon of hell.
