It's time for all DOT companies to ensure they are ready for the new Chain of Custody forms starting on July 1. DOT drug tests completed on the wrong form after June 30 will require the lab will be required to submit a memorandum for the record and will cause a delay in processing.
The new Chain of Custody form mirrors the January 1, 2018 DOT changes. If your company is not currently using eCCF (electronic), it's a good time to check with your testing provider about making the switch. The eCCF will reduce mistakes and paperwork and ensure faster drug screen collections.
For more information on this required change, visit the U.S. Department of Transportation website: U.S. DOT
First Connect has scheduled three webinars on the upcoming Medical Marijuana law and a Bootcamp for employers with drug and alcohol testing programs. "Medical Marijuana in the Workplace: Are you ready for Sepetember?" will be presented on June 14 and July 12. During the webinar, we will review the ins and outs of the new law, the responsibilities of the employer and best practices in your workplace.
Both webinars are a part of our Featured Webinar Series and are free of charge to employers. To register, visit our "Webinar Schedule" page.
