Alcohol Tests


An employer may ask applicants about their drinking habits, ''unless the particular question is likely to elicit information about alcoholism, which is a 'disability covered by the ADA.' The EEOC advises that an employer, therefore, may ask questions such as ''do you drink alcohol?,'' or ''have you ever been arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol?'' These questions are lawful at the pre-offer stage because they do not reveal whether someone has alcoholism. An employer, however, may not ask questions likely to elicit information about whether an applicant has alcoholism. According to the EEOC, such prohibited questions would include: - Do you drink alcohol everyday? - How much alcohol do you drink? - Does alcohol interfere with your daily activities? - Have you ever participated in an alcohol rehabilitation program?
