Why Drug Test?

Companies design drug-free workplace programs to protect themselves from the impact of drug abuse. Drug testing helps prevent the hiring of people who abuse drugs.

It is very important that employers make sure that they have a Company policy in place which meets the requirements for their company environment. Having a drug and alcohol policy in place helps to avoid legal issues with employees.

Companies need to keep the following three statements in mind when developing a policy:

  • The reason for implementing a company policy. When, and under what circumstances the company will conduct drug and/or alcohol testing.
  • The expectation of employees and the consequences for violation of the policy.
  • Once a policy is developed it is recommended that your lawyer reviews and signs off on your policy.
