GoodHire now offers employment drug screening services to help companies build qualified workforces and safe teams.

Using GoodHire, customers can now run drug screens on potential job candidates or employees. The 5-panel test includes a urine analysis for amphetamines, phencyclidine, cocaine, opiates, and marijuana. With marijuana laws changing state by state, some employers may choose not to test for marijuana. For those employers, GoodHire also offers a 4-panel test. 

Drug screening is mandatory in order comply with state and federal regulations in some industries. Many companies choose to run drug tests on candidates and or employees because they believe it boosts productivity and security in the workplace.

GoodHire Employment Drug Screening is available as an add-on to any of our background check packages. Your company will need to have a written drug policy in place before running drug screens.

Drug screening results are normally returned to employers within 1-3 business days after the candidate completes the test.
