The Changing Face of Drug Screening – Trends & Best Practices for 2017

Drug use by the American workforce is on the rise - the percentage of employees testing positive for drugs increased over the last three years to a 10-year high of 4% in urine specimens.

However, urine lab positive rates are not keeping up with self-reported illicit drug use. Escalations in self-reported illicit drug use rates are being driven by increased marijuana use.

As states and municipalities relax restrictions on marijuana use, employers find themselves caught between old rules like zero-tolerance policies and the new laws.

Listen to Dr. Todd Simo, Chief Medical Officer at HireRight as he takes a look at evolving drug screening trends and best practices you can employ for a drug-free workplace in 2017.

In this webinar, you'll learn:

  • Self-reported drug use rates
  • Lab positive rates by specimen
  • States with medical & recreational marijuana statutes
  • Drug screening tips to enhance your drug-free workplace
