FAA Pre-Employment Drug Testing covers the pre employment drug and alcohol testing process. DOT FAA supervisors must know this process intimately if they are to carry out pre employment testing mistake-free.
Mistakes can lead to legal issues that you would definitely rather avoid. While pre employment testing has specific standards and procedures, as long as you know those rules it is fairly straightforward.
In the course we cover:
When FAA Pre-Employment Drug And Alcohol Testing is Required
The FAA and DOT require pre employment drug testing for incoming employees whose job description would involve FAA safety sensitive positions.
If the prospect’s potential job role involves those safety sensitive tasks, then it is your job to administer a drug test.
One, you have to know what qualifies as a safety sensitive position.
And two, after you have determined that a position qualifies as safety-sensitive, you have to know how to properly vet the potential employee’s drug testing history, bringing us to our second topic.
How To Properly Gather Required Information From Previous Employers
You have to dig up past drug testing records on applicants of safety-sensitive positions. If there is an FAA failed pre employment drug test in the applicant’s past, you need to know about it.
But how do you go about vetting your potential employee? It is not quite as simple as you would hope. Thank you, FAA. The FAA has certain standards and procedures to ensure confidentiality for the potential employee. You must follow the procedures laid out by the FAA.
Otherwise, you may be feeling their full wrath breathing down your back, and I doubt anybody wants that.
Again, not highly sophisticated steps. But steps that you need to know nonetheless to avoid backlash. And that is what we do – inform you on the fundamentals involved in the drug and alcohol testing game.
Pawn to C4 or to D4? Well, I don’t know. Maybe ask me a question about drug and alcohol testing.
