Employer Information: Drug & Alcohol Testing

Testing employees or job applicants for drug and/or alcohol use invokes a controversial area of policy and law that is still establishing its parameters.  Employee drug and alcohol abuse costs employers billions of dollars each year in decreased productivity, increased liability exposure, and higher workers' compensation insurance premiums.  Employers should have a substantial and vested interest in providing and ensuring a drug free work environment, for both the safety and welfare of all people in the workplace.
Controversy can ensue when employers ineptly or aggressivelt impose drug testing in a manner that may violate personal or constitutional rights, such as privacy rights and protections against unlawful searches and seizures.  While drug testing is permitted in most states, it is not always government mandated.  For those employers who implement drug testing programs, it is imperative that the programs follow state and federal guidelines in order to warrant protection of employee rights.
Compliance & Safety Management offers policy reviews and consultation services to all of our clients.  We can assist you in developing a workplace testing program, from creation through implementation.  We can also assist you in employee and supervisor training.
