if the testing is random and they don't test everyone but make it a very random chance that you will be one of those tested than they are probably not going to run into any problems. If it seems not to be random there can be a possible discrimination going on

Being as I do not know the specifics of this situation I would advise you contact a local attorney who specializes in this type of law. They will be able to better serve you in determining whether there is a cause of action worth pursuing and if so how to do about doing so. Good luck
