Who needs drug and alcohol screenings?

Employers may ask you to get a pre-employment or periodic drug and alcohol screening. They do it for your well-being, protect your coworkers, protect the business, and depending on the industry, the general public. If you work in an industry overseen by a Department of Transportation (DOT) agency, drug and alcohol screenings are required by federal mandate.
