Are Drug and Alcohol Testing Results Legally Defensible?
Should a workplace drug test result be challenged, the result has a better chance of being legally robust if the sample has been collected and analysed by an appropriately accredited facility. If a facility is NATA accredited, all test methods and procedures have been documented, validated and reviewed by an internationally recognised assessment body.
