Background Checks helping to promote a Drug-free Workplace
A solid Pre employment screening process can help to promote a drug-free workplace, even if drug screening is not utilized. County-level employee background checks can be even more effective than drug screening alone, because candidates will often refrain from drug usage while seeking employment, and subsequently reactivate once employment is secured. Criminal background screening can uncover past criminal drug offenses.
