'Integrity tests' for applicants? Really?

Sherry Griffin's curator insight, December 10, 2013 9:36 AM

So... we have feedback from the EEOC in an advisory letter that when using an integrity test for applicants we may ask about current illegal drug usage.  Those who have used illegal drugs in the past are protected by the EEOC but those who currently use them are not.  Very interesting distinguishment.

The author of the article, though, brings up a very good question: what is the point of using an integrity test with an applicant? If they are currently using drugs, are they really going to answer the question honestly? More importantly, the author poses the question and what if they tell the truth?  Doesn't that show integrity and if that was the point of the test, doesn't that mean they win?

What I find ironic is that we are in an age when HR professionals are constantly excusing bad manners (like not letting an applicant know that they are no longer being considered for a position) because they are "too busy" to possibly have good manners, yet, there are some out there who apparently have time to administer another pre-employment test whose results are suspect.
