An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and the establishment of a random drug testing policy is often enough of an incentive for your workforce to remain drug and alcohol free. While this can be a great measure to employ, it’s crucial that you take local and state laws into consideration as you develop your testing policy. The primary aspect you have to keep in mind is that the testing must be performed truly at random.
Random testing and Reasonable Suspicion Testing are two entirely different concepts, and failure to differentiate the two can get you into legal hot water if you’re not careful. Reasonable suspicion testing is warranted if you have concerns in regards to the behaviors of specific employees. However, you must ensure that your reasoning is in compliance with the laws in your jurisdiction as you devise your testing policy.
It’s also important that random testing is performed in a way that prevents potential biases and is qualified as random. A great way to accomplish this is to invest in a computerized selection system. Depending on your needs, it can be a great idea to first speak with a consultant or lawyer to ensure you don’t cross any legal lines as you develop your policy.
After you’ve set the standards and parameters of your policy, ARCpoint Labs in Columbia, SC is just a phone call away to begin implementation. Whether your send your test subjects to us or need our mobile or on-site services, we offer convenient operating hours for your convenience.
