Many states encourage employers to be a drug-free workplace and several states provide a discount on workers compensation premiums. Ohio is one of those states that provides a discount if the business owner is certified as a drug-free workplace and the drug testing program complies with State law. A drug testing specimen which has an initial positive result will be sent for additional testing through a screening process called a confirmation test, once the confirmation test has been completed a final result will be reported. In most cases a drug test result by the laboratory will be sent to a Medical Review Officer (MRO) for review and verification and in the event that the result is positive the MRO will attempt to contact and interview the donor to determine if there is any lawful or legitimate reason why the specimen has an illegal drug or prescription drug in the donors system. Pickerington Drug testing is a valuable tool for employers who wish to maintain a drug-free workplace environment and state and federal courts have consistently upheld the rights of the employer to be a drug-free workplace and take disciplinary action when an employee has a positive drug test. Drug testing by Pickerington employers, courts, schools and many other organizations is on the rise and the best way to avoid a positive drug test is to not use illegal drugs.
DID YOU KNOW? Pickerington is a city in Fairfield and Franklin counties in the central region of the U.S. state of Ohio. It was founded in 1815 as Jacksonville. Pickerington was known as Jacksonville until 1827, when the citizens petitioned the state legislature to change the name to Pickerington in honor of its founder, Abraham Pickering. It is a suburb of Columbus. The population was 18,291 at the 2010 census. As land annexation, development, and immigration into the Columbus area continues, the city of Pickerington (like many area suburbs) has generally followed suit. Pickerington is also home to the Motorcycle Hall of Fame, located at 13515 Yarmouth Dr. off Interstate 70. The Ohio Secretary of State certified Pickerington as a city in 1991 and was designated as the “Violet Capital of Ohio” in 1996 by the Ohio Legislature. At 11.1 sq mi (29 km2), Pickerington is the second largest city in Fairfield County behind Lancaster. The City of Pickerington is located just east of Columbus. The city features a historic downtown shopping area, while Violet Township is home to rolling hills, log houses, forests, and fields. Resource: Wikipedia
