DOT-Regulated Employment Verifications

Under Federal and State Law, certain industries and specific positions require specific and unique employment verification requirements. EBI's SMART Technology knows all of these required specifications and asks the correct questions and collects the required documents from candidates to ensure compliance.

The entire process is done electronically. Signed forms are stored in our system and are easily accessible as PDFs.

Easy-to-read reports give you a side-by-side comparison of the information supplied by your candidate versus that found during the background search.

DOT Lab-Based Urine Drug Testing

Samples are collected through our 15,000 collection sites and clinics. Each sample is analyzed through a SAMHSA certified laboratory and reviewed by an MRO for accuracy and compliance. All results are delivered through our secure state-of-the-art technology for enhanced security.
