PDA Drug Testing

  |    Posted by Professional's Detective Agency   |  Posted in General Info

A drug-free workplace helps to protect your business from the impact of drug abuse. Pre-employment drug testing helps to prevent the hiring of individuals who abuse drugs.  Most often drug screening is performed as a part of the job application/background screening process. Because every business and workforce is unique, each employer should make a careful determination about the specific elements that are most beneficial for their workplace.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, drug use in the workplace costs employers $81 billion annually. Substance abuse takes a heavy toll on American businesses. If left unchecked, drug abuse can seriously compromise the foundation of the workplace.

Consider these statistics:

Nearly 7 percent of adults employed full time and 9 percent of those employed part time currently use illegal drugs (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration – SAMHSA).

More than 70 percent of substance abusers hold some type of job (American Council of Drug Education). In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, more than 60 percent of adults know someone who has come to work under the influence of alcohol or other drugs.

Drug testing can help to decrease absenteeism, accidents, turnover, downtime and theft while increasing overall employee morale.

If you don’t trust your backgound check provider, you had better be ready to pay the price.  Background screening companies that do not adhere to the tenants of the Fair Credit Reporting Act.  These punitive settlements often range from thousands of dollars in fines to millions of dollars in fines and often involve the offending employer as well as the screening company.  Many of the violations that the Federal Trade Commission fines for are completely preventable with trained due diligence.  These violations include things like improper cover pages and improperly worded letters, things that a Fair Credit Reporting Act trained and licensed professional would know how to handle.

That is where Professional’s Detective Agency comes in.  We employ background screeners seasoned and trained in the minutaie of the Fair Credit Reporting Act.  We are on your side and will be there with you every step of the way to ensure your company’s strict compliance.
