Michigan drug users to be denied unemployment

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder signed a law on Tuesday denying unemployment benefits to job seekers who fail company drug tests. Businesses do not have to notify the state when applicants fail drug tests or decline to take them. But if they pass along the information, applicants not hired because of failed drug tests will lose their checks. The drug-testing law is in effect for one year as a pilot program. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/10/30/us/michigan-failing-drug-test-could-imperil-jobless-pay.html?ref=us
