Drug testing is the process of detecting illegal drugs or alcohol within employees’ systems. Testing can be conducted in accordance with the employer’s policy and any governing state laws on a post-accident, random, or pre-employment basis, in addition to suspicion or cause. Employers who perform drug testing are dedicated to implementing an alcohol- and drug-free working environment to protect employees’ safety and health, and to develop an efficient and productive workplace. A well-drafted strategy describes the variety of testing the employer plans to conduct, the terms surrounding the screening process, and option if the results are positive. An established policy also conveys a strong zero tolerance message towards alcohol and drugs in the workplace.
