Pre-Employment Testing

Pre-Employment Testing


Because a safe work environment is the top priority.

Pre-employment drug testing and alcohol testing is a very useful tool in establishing a safe work environment. By testing people after you have made an offer of employment but before the person begins working, you can reduce the risk of hiring individuals who may pose a heightened safety risk to themselves and others in safety-sensitive work environments.

At CannAmm, we understand the sensitivities around pre-employment drug testing and can help you ensure that your program and policy are in line with human rights legislation. In addition, with years of experience and some of the most experienced people in the drug testing industry in our organization, we deliver results you can trust.

How Pre-Employment Drug Testing Works

  • Pre-employment drug testing and alcohol testing is considered post-offer (after the offer of employment is conditionally accepted).
  • Any non-negative tests are re-tested and confirmed to ensure court-worthy reliability.
  • Because the Canadian Human Rights Act (CHRA) considers an addiction to be a disability, if an applicant tests positive and is determined to have a drug or alcohol addiction, your company has a duty under CHRA to offer accommodation. This may then involve utilizing return-to-duty services.
  • If an applicant tests positive and is not found to have a substance addiction, he or she is not protected under CHRA.
