We have the same policy. We accept drug screens done within the past 30 days for the contract employees.

Good Morning!


I would like to know what is the practice regarding drug testing for contractors/travelers. Our current process is to accept a drug screen if it was performed within 30 days of the start date (per DOT rules).  We get some push back from contractors  and wanted to know what is the practice out there.
