Starting Aug. 25, organizations that must comply with U.S. Department of Transportation drug-testing regulations face new requirements. The new rules affect “return-to-duty” drug tests given to employees who previously tested positive or underwent drug rehab (not first-time tests).
The rules aim to crack down on workers who try to cheat the follow-up tests. They require urine tests to be directly observed to make sure workers don’t use altered urine. If you outsource your drug testing, make sure that company is adhering to the new rules.
