employed as an hourly employee, Company needed someone to transport employee to clinic. I am not his supervisor and there was nothing in writing requesting clinic to do a drug test, but I am now told that in the future I am to request a drug test if I should transport any other employee. Can I do that as only another employee of said business and not anyone's supervisor?
You can as the company's authorized agent.

It depends on the nature of your role at work. It sounds a bit silly for you to have to do it, when you don't seem very comfortable with the nature of the request. Perhaps they can put it in writing and add it to the role you perform at work, so that you aren't being required to do things outside the scope of your ordinary employment. Also, you don't want to be used as a scapegoat if they are drug testing only certain people and not others for the same issues.
