Drug tests for employment
Before being given a new job, many companies require employees to take drug tests. With drugs use and alcohol abuse continuing to be a problem in today society, companies sometimes find that it is necessary to require drug tests from there soon to be employees so that they know they will hopefully not have to deal with any drug related issues in their company's future. When people are given drug tests, they can be exposed to a multiple variety of tests. While drug tests can range in style from a blood drug test, hair drug test, or the most commonly use form of drug testing is from urine. The reason that the urine drug tests are used most frequently is because it is the least evasive, time consuming, and is also quite easy to get accurate results from. When people have to take drug tests they usually go to a professional company other than the one that they are going to be hired by and the test is usually administered by professionals. Once the urine sample is taken from the future employee, the product from the drug test is either tested on a piece of paper or brought to a lab.
If these drug tests are brought to the lab, they can undergo a variety of tests. These tests are a performance liquid chromatography, an immunoassay analysis, or the most common of the drug tests, the GCMS, also known as gas chromatography/mass spectrometry. The main reason that paper drug tests are not done very frequently is because they are not the most accurate of the drug tests out there on the market. If a company is going to have their future employees take time out of their day to go through with these drug tests, they would most likely want one them to take one that is very efficient and accurate. Once an employee passes a drug test, the are usually brought on board and officially welcomed into the company. The existence of drug tests have allowed many companies to maintain an ethical workforce and not have to worry about their employees' behavior.
