Drug testing is an important tool when determining employee impairment on the job or when challenging a workers compensation claim or unemployment compensation case. Any employer who conducts drug testing should ensure that drug testing is part of the companies written drug free workplace policy and all employees are fully aware the drug testing will be conducted in accordance with the company’s drug testing policy.

Drug test screening groups commonly used are a 5 panel, 10 panel and 12 panel drug test,(panels specify how many drugs will be screened) however customized screening can be analyzed for drugs such as opiates, bath salts, synthetic cannabinoids and a wide range of prescription drugs.

In most cases a drug test result by the laboratory will be sent to a Medical Review Officer (MRO) for review and verification and in the event that the result is positive the MRO will attempt to contact and interview the donor to determine if there is any lawful or legitimate reason why the specimen has an illegal drug or prescription drug in the donors system.

Drug testing is a valuable tool for employers who wish to maintain a drug free workplace environment and State and Federal courts have consistently upheld the rights of the employer to be a drug free workplace and take disciplinary action when an employee has a positive drug test.
