Can You Drug Screen Remote Employees?

Jun 8, 2021

With many employees working from home, the business environment may feel like it’s shifting. However, that shouldn’t mean you have to worry about your employees’ performance. Luckily, with the rise in telehealth and self-administered test kits, employees and potential hires can participate in drug screenings from home – without employers having to worry about the results being tampered with. Here, TOPLAB® explains how employers can conduct employee drug screenings on those working from home through our trusted services, which are available in New Jersey and throughout the United States.

The Importance of Drug Testing Remote Employees

It sounds like an inconvenient practice, which is why many employers forego remote drug screenings for employees and potential hires. But thanks to TOPLAB®’s convenient, simple services, more and more companies are realizing the benefits that conducting drug tests for these employees can bring. These include the following and more:

  • Preventing employees from showing up to work in an impaired state
  • Deterring prospective candidates with drug and alcohol dependencies from seeking employment with your organization
  • Protecting your bottom line by helping you avoid the workplace problems associated with such employees
  • Encouraging better employee performance and higher production
  • Promoting a stronger, healthier workforce by holding employees accountable via drug screening

Remote drug testing is especially vital for organizations that must screen employees to remain compliant with industry rules and regulations. No matter the circumstances, TOPLAB® is there to assist.

How to Conduct Remote Drug Screens with TOPLAB®

TOPLAB® is proud to support employers by offering two simple, non-invasive test kit options for drug screening all of their employees, including those working remotely. These include the following:

Urine Sample Drug Screening Kit

This self-explanatory option can be used to collect samples from employees and is easy for them to follow. They’ll simply fill out the paperwork, follow the instructions, and send their samples directly to TOPLAB®.

Oral Fluid Drug Screening Kit

Sitting at the intersection of reliability and innovation, our oral fluid collection kits are just as easy to use as our urine sample kits. Upon receipt of their test kit, employees would simply run a swab on the inside of their cheek as directed and return their sample to us. For added peace of mind, some employers choose to conduct this screening method via video call to ensure the sample isn’t being tampered with.
