Dispute – whether employer bound by a drug policy embodying an industrial settlement by which it agreed in relation to random on-site drug screening to move from urine testing to saliva testing when an Australian Standard for saliva testing was published – neither the industrial settlement nor the policy separately enforceable – whether policy incorporated into workplace agreement by reference and therefore enforceable as part of the workplace agreement – whether employer’s decision to vary the policy to retain a role for urine testing prevented by an application of the principle in the XPT case.
