Why do Drug Testing?
Drug testing is an important part of the hiring process and maintenance of a company for many reasons. It has been proven to be the best preventive measure in ensuring the safety of your workplace. Employee drug use both decreases productivity and increases the likelihood and risk of an accident. Therefore, it is important to the employer to maintain a drug-free workplace.
Your industry may also legally be required to enforce drug testing. In 1988, Congress enacted legislation mandating that any company engaged by the federal government must maintain a drug-free workplace. If you operate a business regulated by the Department of Labor or Department of Transportation, the law requires that employees must be drug tested and conduct periodic physicals.
There are four categories (reasons) for drug testing:
- Random drug testing
- Reasonable suspicion drug testing
