Workplace Drug Testing for Non-DOT and DOT Companies

What are your current drug-free workplace policies? If you're an employer, keeping drugs and alcohol far from the workplace is of utmost importance.

Substance abuse can lead to workplace accidents, on-the-job crime, decreased morale, and increased employee turnover. This is why drug testing in New Jersey companies is so important.

We'll help you:

  • Craft bullet-proof drug testing policies to protect you, your team, and your business entity.

  • Train your staff, including your designated employer representative (DER). For example, we'll show them how to establish reasonable suspicion and determine impairment.

  • Conduct all drug and alcohol testing, including pre-employment screening, reasonable suspicion drug testing, random drug testing, post-accident drug testing, and return-to-duty drug testing.

  • Conduct all background checks. Order checks and receive the results electronically.

Keeping DOT Companies and Owner-Operators Compliant

US Drug Test Centers also works with companies and owner-operators employed by the Department of Transportation (DOT). Staying compliant with local and federal law is crucial to keep your business running.

Screening is particularly important for safety-sensitive employees. Such testing confirms that they're capable of fulfilling their duties while keeping themselves, coworkers, and the general public safe.

We offer all of the aforementioned services to DOT businesses so that you can pass an audit at any time.

New Jersey Drug Testing FAQs

Are employers in New Jersey able to use drug screening for any other claim defenses or state-specific financial benefits?
Yes. Employers may be able to leverage an ‘Intoxication’ defense to a Workers’ Compensation Claim, based on a positive drug test result and misconduct. A positive drug test may also make an employee ineligible for unemployment compensation. Employers wishing to leverage either of these benefits must voluntarily comply with very detailed program rules.
Does New Jersey authorize marijuana (THC) or cannabidiol (CBD) use?
Yes. This state has authorized the use of medical marijuana for limited medical conditions.

If a medical marijuana registrant tests positive for marijuana the employer must provide an opportunity for them to present a legitimate medical explanation, the employer must provide a written notice of the right to explain the test results and within three working days, the employee or job applicant may submit information to explain the result or may request a retest at the employee or applicants own expense.   Recently, a court ruled that a disabled and authorized medical marijuana using employee may sue his former employer under the states’ discrimination law. Employers may also be required to pay for the cost of medical marijuana.

In New Jersey, if you test positive on a drug test it can be grounds for termination or a rescinded job offer.

Drug Test Options for Individuals in New Jersey

We don't only work with companies. US Drug Test Centers also provides testing to individuals in New Jersey.

This includes court-ordered drug testing — DUI, child custody, and probation screening.

How We Screen for Drugs

We offer urine drug testing, hair drug testing, and breath alcohol testing in the state of New Jersey.

Urine drug testing is the most common screening method, especially for employers. Hair follicle drug testing offers certain unique benefits. Because the whole test is conducted by the collector, it's impossible for the donor to cheat. Furthermore, hair drug testing has a longer detecting window, so it's a better way to detect long-term patterns of drug abuse.

If you're not sure what type of drug test you need, contact us for assistance.
