WorkLink Staffing provides Pre-Employment Drug Screening to all Employees

Per Quest Diagnostics:

According to data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 10.6% of full-time employees and 13.2% of part-time employees aged 18 or older reported using illicit drugs within the past month1. Survey respondents who reported past-month drug use said they would be less likely to work for employers that conduct pre-employment or random drug testing.

In addition, data from Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)2 shows that employees who use drugs are:

  • 2.5 times more likely than co-workers who do not use drugs to be absent for 8 or more days each year
  • 3.6 times more likely to be involved in an accident at work
  • 5 times more likely to file a workers’ compensation claim
