The proportion of major U.S. companies that require new or current employees to submit to drug tests slipped to 66 percent this year, down from 70 percent last year and 74 percent in 1998, according to a new American Management Association study.

Companies that use psychological assessments, including cognitive and managerial testing, held steady at 33 percent, which is much lower than the 52 percent that used the tests in 1998.

Another recent AMA study found that 74 percent of companies now review and/or record their employees' communications, including Web and e-mail use. That figure has nearly doubled in just three years. For more information, visit www.amanet.org.
