Jesse Jauregui was quoted in a recent Business Insurance article discussing the Supreme Court’s decision upholding the federal government’s right to ask contract workers about illegal drugs, among other open-ended questions, in National Aeronautics and Space Administration et al. vs. Robert M. Nelson et al. “They did not address the central question, but I did not expect them to,” said Jauregui. Instead, the court “issued a very fact-specific decision,” rather than “making any sweeping pronouncements.”
The Court’s decision is “significant in the sense that it still leaves employers with a lot of gray areas” concerning privacy, Jauregui noted.
