Can I request a retest for drug test?
If you believe a positive result is wrong, you can ask to be retested.
Drug tests are not 100% accurate and you have the right to challenge a decision you feel is wrong..
Why would you have to retake a drug test?
The most common reason is because people drink too many fluids before they test, so the sample returns as a dilute. It’s a possible for a dilute to indicate a negative result, but if it is too diluted then they can’t use the sample and it requires a retest.
What happens if drug test comes back positive?
If the test results in a positive reading, meaning there is drug residue in the body, the results are forwarded to a medical review officer, who reviews the results and looks for any possible valid medical explanation for the results.
Is it bad to reschedule a drug test?
Yes, you can retake at a future scheduled date. No, they don’t fail you, they just reschedule.
