Which CCF forms have changed?
The Department of Transportation (DOT) recently made two key changes to DOT-regulated Custody and Control Forms (CCF), which is pertinent to those using paper forms. The first change is the addition of a Commercial Driver's License (CDL) state and number. The second change is that the new form accommodates the future use of oral fluid (saliva) specimens for DOT testing. More information can be found on our article "DOT-Regulated CCF Changes You Need to Be Aware Of".
How may an employer show themselves to have provided a "reasonable accommodation" to employees who have been directed by a physician to use CBD, even though such use may result in a positive drug test?
An employer would follow the “accommodation” guidelines as indicated in their employment policy. The corporate HR group should assess whether or not efforts have been appropriate and should indicate when those efforts have been exhausted. Reasonable accommodations are changes made to accommodate a person’s disability, i.e., allowing someone to sit instead of stand, modifying work schedules, modifying work duties, placing an employee on leave until they complete all medication, etc.
Do different testing policies for different clients have different saturation levels as a threshold for positive vs. negative tests?
YES - All drug testing policies have a testing “panel.” Testing panels consist of substances and level thresholds (limit of detection). DISA offers policies with customized panels, in addition to policies that require standard/regulated panels. (Please note, all DOT and some safety-sensitive, non-DOT drug testing programs have mandatory testing panels)
How can an employee obtain a copy of their DISA drug test results?
Copies of test results may be obtained through several departments, depending on the results. For positive test results, please contact DISA’s Return-To-Duty department, or contact your MRO. For negative test results, please contact your company’s HR department.
