Testing Your Employees
Employers or organisations decide to drug test their employees for a number of reasons but most importantly, you should test whenever your policy dictates. Only by testing, can you enforce your policy and begin to address drug and alcohol misuse.
Reporting Test Results
Taking action on a reported positive result can lead to serious consequences. Therefore it is vital that before acting the results have been checked to prevent wrongful accusations when legitimate medications cause a positive result.
