Drug testing employees is nothing new. What continues to change is the way people try to cheat a drug test. There are many ways to try and substitute or cheat a drug test. Having a strong policy in place is sometimes even more important than the test itself. Even showing a potential candidate the consent form can help “weed out” the wrong hire.
You Know Who You’re Getting
If you are exploring different options for employment drug testing as a business owner or hiring professional, you may find someone to be the perfect candidate. This person could go as far as feeling like they were sent directly to you through way of mutual friend or ally, but without checking on their background, you don’t know them yet.
Save Yourself the Money
If someone isn’t willing to take a drug test or submit to a background check, well guess what, you just saved yourself a failed drug test or background check. We always recommend utilizing a form of a pre employment background check to help verify your hire, but sometimes you can simply prevent a bad hire by sharing the details of the check.
Prevent Future Loss
Making a mistake or not following through on a background check could cost you significant money down the line. Not to mention, have you seen how much it really costs to hire a new employee? If that employee flakes, or doesn’t pan out, OR WORSE, you could end up in a lawsuit. It is not unrealistic to see this occur in our industry.
We aren’t here to tell you what to do, but we wouldn’t be living up to the integrity of our personal mission if we didn’t explain what you should do when it comes to hiring. Having a dependable partner for background check policy and employment drug testing policies is so important in 2020.
If you or someone you know have any questions regarding your current background check policy in the COVID-19 era, please don’t hesitate to reach out via our contact form or give us a call!
