This video PSA warns job-seekers of the dangers inherent in Point of Contact Test cups, also called instant drug test cups.
The video was prompted by ACCU-Lab’s recent discovery that instant drug test cups returned False Positives with tap water.
It is designed to raise awareness—and hopefully, generate some action—about the pitfalls faced by job-seekers who submit to pre-employment instant drug tests.
“As a long-time consumer rights advocate in the drug testing industry, it is my responsibility to advise prospective donors and users alike to take steps to protect themselves when providing or collecting specimens using instant drug test cups,” said Warren Cooper, ACCU-Lab Medical Testing founder and CEO.
“Point of Contact drug testing attracts users because it is fast and inexpensive, however the methodology is not regulated and the results are unreliable. This is absolutely a case of ‘user or donor, beware.’”
Share this information with your family, friends, anyone you know has been, or may be, required to take a pre-employment drug test.
Then let your voice be heard. Contact your state legislators and tell them that Illinois job-seekers should be protected from pre-employment drug testing that relies on Point of Contact Tests, aka instant drug test cups.
