Drug testing facts about laboratory drug test "positives":
FACT! EMPLOYED WORKERS have 59% HIGHER drug test positive rates than JOB APPLICANTS! Of the 5.7 million drug tests performed in 2011 by Quest Diagnostics (largest U.S. forensic laboratory), 3.4% of the general workforce pre-employment drug testing results were "positive” and 5.4% of random drug test results of EXISTING EMPLOYEES were "positive". FACT: If your company is NOT "randomly" drug testing existing employees, it is likely your organization's drug positives rate will be considerably higher than that 5.4% "average" the first time you do. Unfortunately, pre-employment drug testing - alone - is NOT sufficient to keep your company a Drug-Free Workplace. Ongoing random employee drug testing (sadly, "the fear of being caught") is the ONLY way to ensure your company's workforce is...and will continue to be...drug-free!
