Before a company implements comprehensive drug testing, for employees it's imperative to come up with a drug testing policy so as to prevent any confusion or legal implications. The purpose of the procedure and the proper step by step process should be stated within the policy.

In an event that aspiring employees or new applicants question your workplace drug-testing program, the policy can talk on your behalf. It serve as proof that the program is part of your company protocol, and the procedures to be followed by prospective and existing employees. The policy protects the interest of the company, both employer and employees, and promotes a safe and drug free environment.

Each company has different drug testing requirements and objectives. So the policy should be based on the specific objectives a company wants to reach with regards to state and federal laws. Knowing your company objectives will help you better conduct your drug testing program, how to address candidates, and when the right time is to conduct the test. This will serve as a guide to identify the specific type of drug testing methods the company needs, whether it's a random testing, a pre-employment drug screening, annual, reasonable suspicion, post-accident or return-to-duty drug testing.
