I recently accepted a job offer. The job offer did list "Conditions of Employment" being two things. The first that I can prove I can work in the US and the other that I can pass the background checks. Within all the documents in the new hire paper work, no drug screen was mentioned and none was mentioned in the job offer letter itself. I start on December 3rd.
While I understand any job can randomly drug test if they so choose due to suspicion of use (which I would never do), however, my question is if they can spring the drug test on me the last minute PRIOR to my employment start date? *Note: This job does not require me to operate any heavy machinery in any way.
I was advised the entire job letter would need to be amended and potentially they would need to change my start date if this was the case. Any insight? *I am not concerned about a routine drug screen
