ABOUT PRE-EMPLOYMENT DRUG TESTS
Pre-employment drug tests are drug tests given to job candidates after a job offer is extended, but before they start their first day of work. Employment may be conditional on passing the pre-employment drug test.
There isn’t a special type of drug test that’s reserved for pre-employment. Employers can use hair drug tests, urine drug tests, saliva drug tests or other drug tests for their pre-employment drug screenings.
