My question involves a hypothetical future injury occurring in the state of: California
I am looking to work as a limousine driver/wine tour guide. Back in January, I tested positive for marijuana, and subsequently lost my job. I was working as a wine tour guide/chauffeur.
The person I spoke with today, is concerned that, if hypothetically, I get into an accident in the future, (assuming he hires me) being that I have to have an SAP (substance abuse professional) on file, (I am required under state and federal law to have an SAP on file for 3 years) would the company be held accountable for hiring someone with an SAP on file?
From what I understand, the SAP is the person responsible for making the determination to put an employee in a safety sensitive position.
