Small businesses at risk in hiring new employees
drugs in the workplace is a big one. According to statistics from recent studies on drug abuse by American workers, workplace drug and alcohol use costs U.S. businesses an estimated $100 billion each year. U.S. Department of Labor studies show that workers who abuse drugs and alcohol are more likely to skip work or, when they are on the job, are one-third less productive, costing employers approximately $7,000 a year. Employees using drugs are also more likely to cause workplace accidents or file workers’ compensation claims. What’s the answer? Well, if you’re a small business you need to understand just how important drug and alcohol testing can be. It may seem expensive, but in the long run it is entirely worth it.
