What is a pre-employment drug test?
A pre-employment drug test is used to determine if a job applicant uses illicit substances or abuses prescription medication. It may also be used for employees who are returning to work after an injury or absence, at which time it may be referred to as a pre-placement drug test. It is common for employers to require a job candidate to complete a pre-employment drug test, and a job offer may be contingent upon the applicant’s ability to pass.

Standard drug and alcohol testing panels and customized drug testing panels are available upon request. The 5-panel urine drug test and 8-panel urine drug continues to be the most commonly used test for pre-employment, random, post-accident and reasonable suspicion tests.
Michigan is one of a small number of states that has no law addressing drug testing in private employment. This means that drug testing is not prohibited or restricted, unless it violates other legal provisions (such as a law prohibiting discrimination)
Many companies perform drug testing to take advantage of the incentives like reductions in worker’s comp insurance rates. In reality, any employer that wants to ensure a safe, productive work environment and lowers risk of the negatives brought on by employee drug use, should conduct employment drug testing.
When Employment Drug Testing Usually Occurs
An employee drug testing program will include screening both pre-employment and post-hire. Employers should consider when testing will take place and make sure the requirements are consistent throughout the company.
Pre-Employment – The most common type of drug test is pre-employment drug testing, conducted as a condition of future employment.
Post-Accident – Employers should conduct employee drug testing after an accident/incident to determine if drug use may have played a role.
Random – Most employers wants to establish a random employee alcohol and drug testing program where a percentage of all employees are randomly screened throughout the year. This is an excellent way to ensure employees remain drug-free beyond the standard pre-employment drug testing.
Reasonable Suspicion – It is even more vital with the rise in marijuana use, employers can require employee drug testing when illegal drug use is suspected. Employers are strongly encouraged to train their managers on how to accurately detect and handle reasonable suspicion situations.
Pre-Placement - For employees who are returning to work after an injury or absence
Return to Duty – For those employees that fail an employee drug test and are ready to return to the workplace may be required to submit a return-to-duty employee drug test.
