Refusing hair-sample drug test trims firm’s bank account

G2 Secure Staff has settled a disability discrimination charge stemming from poor hiring practices at Raleigh-Durham International Air­­port, where the company provides security services.

Sharif K. Thompson had applied for a shift supervisor job with the firm, which requires all applicants to take drug tests. Thompson suffers from end-stage renal failure and cannot urinate. He asked to have his drug test completed using a hair sample. The company refused his re­­quest—and then refused to hire him.

Thompson complained to the EEOC, and it looked like the case would go to trial. That’s when G2 offered to settle the case for $30,000.
