Providing Drug Testing For Municipalities Nationwide

Drug & Alcohol Program Administration For Municipal Employees

About Preferred Alliance

Many municipalities have started requiring drug testing for civil service employees. This is not required under federal or California state law but more and more municipalities are implementing their own policies. Having a drug testing policy and program can be very beneficial to employers in a large variety of industries.

When it comes to civil service employees, having a drug testing program in place can help improve the quality of employee and make sure job sites are safe and efficient. Doing this can increase tax payers confidence and make it known that the municipality takes substance abuse very serious and is doing all that they can to guarantee quality services.

Why You Should Have a Drug-Testing Policy In Place

One question that we get asked is ‘if it’s not required by law, then why should we implement a drug testing policy?  The answer is because it can improve the quality of the job site but it also offers the employer a degree of protection.

Not only does having a clear drug testing program in place help prevent possible harmful incidents as well as offer the employer a degree of protection from potential liability, it also helps improve the overall quality of the workplace.

We can test for a variety of substances, depending on the type of drug testing program chosen. The client can choose the type of test that best suits their needs.

Drug Testing For Municipalities In California

Drug Testing For Municipalities

A lot of municipal governments have started implementing their own drug testing policies. The reason for this is that municipal employees are paid by tax dollars, making them and the municipality, accountable to the general public. Civil servants are expected to meet a certain standard and regular drug testing helps hold them to that standard by keeping everyone accountable.

For municipal governments in the State of California that are looking to implement or improve a drug testing policy, Preferred Alliance is here to help. We have experience working with municipal governments and creating systems that meet their needs. Preferred Alliance is able to tailor our systems to fit our individual clients and help them meet the industry standard, including municipal governments.
