Pennsylvania Schools Consider Pre-Employment Drug Tests

Friday, May 29, 2009

Only about 60 school districts in the state of Pennsylvania have standard pre-employment drug testing procedures. Drug testing is not required by state law, it is up to the individual school districts to decide whether or not to implement a drug testing program.

FBI fingerprinting and extensive background investigations are a given across the state. Holidaysburg is one district that does perform drug tests on all new applicants. They say they've never had somebody fail the test, but a fail would eliminate that applicant from hire.

The district pays for the drugs tests with their own money and says that they test for the safety of their students. Employees are required to agree to a drug free policy to be good role models for the students.


Resume Lies Lead to Serious Injury in Dallas

Thursday, May 28, 2009

May 2nd was a tragic day in Dallas, TX. The practice facility used by the Dallas Cowboys collapsed seriously injuring two players. One was left with a broken neck and the other with permanent paralysis.

The director of engineering on the project, Jeffery Lawerence Galland runs his own consulting firm but works with the firm, JCI who oversaw the construction of the facility in 2003 and the reinforcement that led to the collapse.

Galland falsified his educational creditionals on his resume. In a written summary, Galland states that he received a bachelors degree from Eastern Washington University. A education verification confirmed that he did attend the university, but did not receive the stated degree.

Galland also served federal prison time for drug trafficking.
