Not to be rude but results of drug/alcohol testing while he was employed for UPS are none of your business!!
Actually, they are. Like I mentioned earlier, I am required by the US Department of Transportation Regulations to find out any prospective driver's drug and alcohol testing information for the preceding 3 years. These are not my company's rules....they are set forth by the US DOT and we have to follow them to the "T" or we are not in compliance.
Correct me if I am wrong but wouldn't pulling an abstract of the applicant's CDL provide this information?
I guess you never heard of
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) Privacy Rule
It against the law for that infomation to be given to anyone.
Have the person a pre employment that your company pays for and then you will know the results.
If you REALLY knew what you were doing here, you would not be on an internet forum board trying to find out what you need to do!!
Companies that use The Work Number to verify past employment have another office that releases the drug and alcohol testing information. I'm just trying to find the central HR office that would take care of this.
I think that this guy, bspe is right. He is required to get that info. And bluehmdc, you might have missed the fine print when you put the signature on the piece of paper, but you probably authorized the employer to have permission for the results of your drug tests
And upstate ny, an abstract would not include the results of many drug tests. For example, a feeder driver gets randomly picked to give a urine test, he tests positive and is fired. That info won't be on an abstract.
Most big trucking companies put this info on a D.A.C. (can't remember what that stands for ) but it is sort of a central location for information on a driver, including failed drug tests. UPS, as far as I know, does not put this info on a d.a.c.
Finally, a voice of reason. D.A.C. was bought by USIS and then USIS was recently bought by Hire Right. They still call it a DAC report, though. Most companies still do not put drug testing info on the DAC reports....a few do.
