Many employers randomly drug test their workforce. Based on state and local laws in place in your jurisdiction and the needs of your business, you may decide that a random drug testing policy is a good fit. The important thing to keep in mind is that a random testing procedure, when implemented must be just that — random.
If you have concern about one or more specific employees and are considering testing them for drugs or alcohol, that situation falls under Reasonable Suspicion Testing. It is important to understand the distinction between these two procedures and to choose, write and implement your policies carefully to stay in compliance with state and local laws.
Random testing must be implemented in a way that actually qualifies as random. Many employers opt for a computerized system to insure unbiased and truly random selection of names. Before you proceed with random drug testing, make sure to consult with an attorney or other appropriate consultant who can advise you on best practices for your locale and business model.
Once your policy is in place, ARCpoint Labs can help you implement it in the most appropriate and convenient way. You may send your randomly-chosen subjects to our local office, or we can bring our mobile lab to your place of business.
