Pre-employment Drug Testing Benefits

Pre-employment drug testing offers numerous benefits that contribute to the overall success and efficiency of your company. By implementing a pre-employment drug testing program, you can significantly reduce absenteeism among employees. Substance abuse can lead to frequent absences from work due to health issues, personal problems, or legal complications. By ensuring that prospective employees are drug-free before hiring them, you minimize the risk of absenteeism caused by substance abuse-related issues.

 

  • Pre-employment drug testing helps to mitigate the occurrence of workplace accidents. Employees under the influence of drugs or alcohol are more prone to making errors, being involved in accidents, or causing harm to themselves and others. By screening potential hires for drug use, you create a safer work environment and reduce the likelihood of accidents, injuries, and property damage.
     

  • Employee drug testing programs have been shown to enhance overall productivity within the workplace. Substance abuse can impair cognitive functions, decrease focus and concentration, and lead to poor decision-making, all of which negatively impact job performance. By ensuring that your workforce is drug-free, you promote higher levels of productivity, efficiency, and quality of work output.

 

  • Pre-employment drug testing helps to reduce employee turnover rates. Substance abuse issues can lead to disciplinary actions, poor job performance, and strained relationships with coworkers, ultimately resulting in termination or resignation. By screening potential hires for drug use, you can identify candidates who are less likely to engage in substance abuse-related behaviors, thereby reducing turnover and the associated costs of recruiting, hiring, and training new employees.

 

  • Additionally, implementing a pre-employment drug testing program provides added protection for your company against potential legal liabilities. Drug-related incidents in the workplace, such as accidents, injuries, or conflicts, can result in costly lawsuits, damage to your company's reputation, and loss of business opportunities. By demonstrating a commitment to maintaining a drug-free workplace through pre-employment drug testing, you mitigate the risk of legal repercussions and protect your company's assets and reputation.


Overall, the cost savings resulting from decreased absenteeism, fewer accidents, improved productivity, reduced turnover, and enhanced legal protection can offset the expenses associated with implementing and maintaining an employee drug testing program. By investing in pre-employment drug testing, your company can reap numerous long-term benefits and ensure a safer, more productive, and more profitable work environment.

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.


For pre-employment drug testing, Michigan Court Services, Inc offers Breath Alcohol Testing (BAC) using EBT devices, PBT, urine testing, and EtG testing. For more information about these specific tests, click here.


Standard drug and alcohol testing panels and customized drug testing panels are available upon request. The 5-panel urine drug test and 8-panel and 12-panel urine drug tests continue to be the most commonly used tests 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.

When Does Employment Drug Testing Usually Occur?

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 want 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 who fail an employee drug test and are ready to return to the workplace, they may be required to submit a return-to-duty employee drug test.​
