Legal / Ethics Session:
The challenges of implementing a drug testing program from an international perspective are multi-layered and complex. A brief review of those challenges are as follows:
- First, is it legally permissible to drug screen all or some employment candidates for drugs
- Second, based upon the country’s laws is it feasible to conduct such testing
- Third, is there an infrastructure in the country to support convenient collection and laboratory testing
- Lastly, from a candidate psychology perspective, is drug testing palatable
All of the above bullets need to be addressed in order for an employer mandated testing program to be implemented. Addressing these problems requires multiple stakeholders from individuals who have knowledge of in-country regulations and biases to a network of service providers that meet a given client’s need for testing.
During this session, multiple providers who have tackled these challenges from different perspectives will discuss how they handle these issues now as well as how they hope to do so in.
