What You Need to Know About Reasonable Suspicion Testing

What You Need to Know About Reasonable Suspicion Testing

Is reasonable suspicion testing part of your overall drug-free workplace program? If yes, are you confident you know how to determine when an employee's behavior and appearance warrants testing and what you should do about it?

With the ongoing trend around the legalization of marijuana and laws designed to protect the basic civil rights of workers, employers may be confused on when or under what circumstances they can conduct drug tests. However, reasonable suspicion testing is the number one way for companies to identify whether an employee is using drugs or alcohol while working. How you recognize potential drug use and how you handle it determines the overall health and safety of your entire workforce. 

Dr. Todd Simo, HireRight's Chief Medical Officer, provides an overview of the physical and behavioral signs to look out for when employees are using cannabinoids, stimulants, opiods, PCP, and alcohol. He will also review the states and jurisdictions that have some form of regulatory definition for reasonable suspicion testing.

Topics Covered Include:

  • Value of a Drug-Free Workplace Program
  • General Overview of For-Cause Testing
  • Signs & Symptoms of Various Drugs
  • State and Jurisdiction Overview
  • Best Practice Recommendations
