It’s quite common in U.S. employment that a drugs test is required prior to the employee officially starting. This process becomes even more stringent where relocation is necessary, resulting in different State laws coming into effect.

Employment drug testing is when an employer analyzes a sample from an employee, such as a urine, hair or saliva sample, to detect drug use. If you’re looking for a new job, your prospective employer may require drug testing as part of the hiring process. This can help ensure safety in the workplace and avoid any liability by your employer. These tests could occur before an employer offers a position or during your term of employment.

Companies drug test employees for reasons such as accuracy in employment decisions and compliance with government regulations. Drug abuse among employees could affect safety among other employees and customers, potentially leading to accidents, injuries or absenteeism. Employers may also require or offer drug testing for high-risk jobs or as part of regular monitoring procedures. Drug testing can also serve as a deterrent for drug use in the workplace so that companies can keep all employees safe.
