Job seekers test positive for drugs at highest rate since 2007

Drug testing at workWhile some employers are still on the fence with regards to drug testing, this latest information may make those against it rethink. “Employers are going to have to take a hard look at their policies and decide if they want to do drug testing,” said Holli Hartman, counsel at BakerHostetler. “[Marijuana] is still an illegal drug on the federal level, but employers are still going to have a lot of discretion to decide what goes on in the workplace and also what their employees do outside of the workplace to some extent.”

Drug screening in your workplace

If you’re an employer questioning how to create a drug testing policy, this is where a pre-employment screening company can help. The ideal next step would be to get in touch with someone who provides these services, who can identify your needs and help create a program to suit you. Any concerns or questions you have, from costs to types of testing, can be answered, and an employment screening service will be able to judge how a drug screening program can help your business progress.
