Reasonable Suspicion Testing

Reasonable Suspicion Testing

Reasonable suspicion testing can be one of the most challenging aspects of a drug-free workplace program; however, it can have a profound impact on the safety and productivity of your workforce. When workers know their employer has a standing policy of testing anyone suspected of being impaired or under the influence of drugs or alcohol while at work, they are less likely to use substances on the job.

But such drug testing is not something an employer does sporadically. Reasonable suspicion testing needs to be applied methodically and consistently, in accordance with a broader policy on reasonable suspicion.
