    It's going to depend on the employer and the position. Some employers do a background check and no drug test. Some do a drug test and no background check. Some do both (and different companies have very different definitions of what a background check entails). Commented Feb 12, 2022 at 7:32

    Without a country tag, any answer to this will be meaningless. Depending on country and industry, this can be somewhere between legally required and super shady illegal.

If I have to submit a urine test does that automatically mean I'll get a background check

No, it doesn't automatically mean that a background test will be required.

Drug tests and background tests are two separate things. In most locales, permission from you would be required before each.

I was not told anything about a background check will they later say it

They may. In some domains, in some locales, it's routine.
