Description
Pre-employment drug testing is a best practice for spotting high-risk job candidates. And many organizations that perform drug testing on existing employees see an increase in productivity and a decrease in turnover rates. However, sometimes drug testing can be a complex screening process. Attend this session to get answers to how other employers manage a drug testing program, understand basic concepts including drug classes and testing methodology and discuss the results you receive to understand the true impact.

Questions answered include:

• What type of drug test programs do other companies typically select?
• What drugs can I test for?
• What does the drug test result mean?
• What is a dilute specimen?
• What are the rules regarding medical marijuana?

Drug screening can help you safeguard against problems such as high absenteeism, unnecessary worker’s compensation claims and compliance with industry regulations.

Attend this course to help boost your overall hiring efficiencies and learn how innovative technologies can provide you with instant visibility into the drug screening process with faster Web-based turnaround on negative results. Learn more about the role of the MRO (Medical Review Officer), National Scheduling, and random drug testing options to fine tune your program and maximize the return on your investment.

If you have considered drug testing, come learn the basics as to why you should consider adding this to your quality of hire checklist. This webinar also provides you a chance to ask questions of a drug screening expert who has helped hundreds of clients set up and run successful drug screening programs.

LexisNexis has been providing our valued clients with comprehensive turnkey substance abuse program administration since 1991.
