The federal government supposedly has a drug free workplace. However, if an employee gets hurt, they are not required to submit to a drug screen like the majority of the private industry requires. The federal government should not pay benefits to someone who is using illicit drugs on the job.
All Federal Employees should be drug tested annually for illegal drugs. Three strikes and your out policy. Automatic dismissal . This would get get rid of a lot of poor performers and open up jobs for veterans returning home.
More should be done to make sure cases are reviewed when the medical diary date comes up. Claimant's shouldn't use Social Security as a long-term solution in cases where their condition might improve.
Also, drug testing should be done to make sure those recieving benefits are not abusing them. This would create jobs for the economy and save money for the people abusing their benefits.
