Drug Testing Compliance/Policy

COMPLIANCE THROUGH TECHNOLOGY
Let’s face it. .. companies performing drug and alcohol testing are concerned about issues related to compliance. Mandatory state laws, state marijuana laws, ADA and OSHA violations, Workers’ Compensation and Unemployment claims are all topics keeping program managers awake at night. Few companies have the time to keep up with ongoing drug testing industry changes. They need an expert whose sole business is to stay current with these issues.

WE ARE THE EXPERTS IN THIS INDUSTRY.
So how can an employer keep up with the ever-changing regulatory and legal environment related to drug and alcohol testing? They can hire a law firm to assist with policy development, but they rarely offer an ongoing advisory service or send out updates on industry changes. Traditional consulting firms are available, but often have high hourly fees and do not offer instant access to industry information. Employers can partner with Encompass Compliance Corporation, the only company in the industry providing a vast amount of compliance information through a cloud-based solution. Our sole business is mitigating compliance risk for our clients. We have priced our service so every company performing drug and alcohol testing can afford our self-managed Encompass Risk Shield solution.
