ADDITIONAL PRE-EMPLOYMENT SCREENING SERVICES:

Drug Testing
There are a variety of reasons to test employees for illegal drug use. Many companies screen potential employees as part of their onboarding process. This preventative act, when coupled with on-going random testing, may help keep troublemakers out of the workplace. Of course, screening for illegal drugs is always a good follow-up for accidents or if there is some sort of cause for suspicion. Drug testing also can be an effective way to reduce workplace accidents and improve safety
Credit Checks
Some industries, such as banking and finance, require credit checks due to the sensitive nature of their business. We comply with all privacy and regulatory requirements and provide detailed documentation for all credit checks.
