Drug and Alcohol Testing Programs
Alcohol and drug abuse are widespread problems in our society, and it affects us all in many ways. Although national, state and local efforts have begun to show encouraging results, the problem of alcohol and other drug abuse remains a serious issue.
No workplace is immune. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, almost 73 percent of all current drug users ages 18-49 are full time or part time employed – more than 8.3 million workers.
Employers who think alcohol and other drug abuse will never be a problem in their workplace should consider this: Job applicants who can’t pass drug tests or alcohol testing tend to apply to companies that don’t require workplace drug testing

Background Screening Programs
There are many reasons to perform a pre employment background check on every new employee. According to the US Department of Commerce, 30 percent of business failures are due to poor hiring practices.
Annual losses generated by poor hires, absenteeism, drug abuse, and theft amount to $75 billion per year. Negligent hiring lawsuits are one of the fastest growing trends today that end in million dollar settlements.
Internal employee related theft is 15 times greater than external theft.
A leading business publication reports that 34 percent of all job applicant applications contain lies regarding experience, education and the ability to perform essential functions of the job. Pre employment screening can identify these people before they are hired.
Don’t let your company fall victim to these pitfalls by performing a pre employment background check on potential employees. Choose from one of our pre employment screening packages or let AMC customize an employee background check package that fits your individual hiring needs.
