The Drug Policy Development Process

Step 1: The first step in the drug policy development process is to identify your company's drug testing objectives--What does your company hope to achieve by revising it's existing drug testing policy or implementing a new program? We'll take you step-by-step to accurately identify those drug testing objectives. 

Step 2: We'll draft a drug policy to reflect your company's culture, existing safety, disciplinary standards, and desired objectives. This includes a comprehensive language of the following components:

  • Purpose Statement
  • Coverage
  • Drug and Alcohol Test Types
  • Drug and Alcohol Testing Procedures
  • Prohibited Conduct
  • Consequences
  • Policy Employee Consent Forms

Step 3: Once the first draft is reviewed, we'll make any needed changes to the base drug policy and then begin adding specific individual state addendum as required. State addendum will include language pertaining to legal requirements for a particular state that differ from the main content found in the base drug policy. 

Addendum language can also be added that reflects legal requirements in a states' workers' compensation and/or unemployment compensation laws that impact drug testing. Also, added language where medical marijuana laws are applicable.
