Pre-employment drug testing is alive & well, and never more important as companies prepare their drug-free workplace programs for the end of the COVID-19 Pandemic. Consider this: Studies show that substance abuse increases dramatically during a national crisis and remains at elevated levels for months afterwards. Combine that with the fact that through the end of April there were more than 30 million “new” unemployed workers in the United States, people who had jobs before the pandemic and who will want to find a job again when it ends.
To secure a truly safe and drug-free workplace in the coming months as the pandemic ends will require quick, efficient, and cost-effective pre-employment drug testing, background checks, and even COVID testing. The future of workplace drug testing will be less about impairment and more about ensuring a clean workplace, a healthy workforce, and drug-free working conditions.
