This is a further information request so that I can provide you a proper answer to your legal question. Please continue in this same question thread.
Were you under the influence of dagga while you were at work? Was it a random drug test? Were the employees given notice that they would be conducting a test? Did they single you out, or did they test a few people?
Awaiting your further information.
I am afraid that the company can have a policy whereby you are required to submit to random drug tests. This is especially the case where they company could argue that you are dealing in a dangerous situation (e.g. mining) or something like that.
Based on the positive drug test, they can take you to a disciplinary hearing, and if you are found guilty, they can fire you.
They DO have to have a hearing though, and at the hearing you need to be given a chance to reply to the charges put against you.
