To Drug Test or Not To Drug Test – that is the question many companies, especially small companies struggle with regarding drug testing employees. Be it pre-employment, random, cause related/suspicion based. For many small companies they are not sure if they can afford to do pre-employment and/or random testing. Statistics vary from source to source, but virtually all indications are that over 70% of people who utilize/abuse drugs are employed. Pre-employment testing of the people a company chooses to offer employment helps insure the best hiring decision. Random drug testing helps insure the company maintains a drug free work place. Both types of drug testing will save the company, regardless of size, time, energy and costs. The better question might be, can a company afford not to test?
