When to use it
In some circumstances drug testing may be justified where working under the influence of drugs could give rise to health and safety considerations or serious damage to the employer's business.
The use and application of testing must be justified, necessary and proportionate.
Testing should be done with employee consent (although an employer can make withholding consent a disciplinary matter).
Employers must also comply with the data protection principles relevant to sensitive personal data.

Job offer explained
Job offer letters start the employment relationship off on a positive note. They let the candidate know that they were chosen specifically and that you recognise the skills and experience they bring to your company. This encourages new employees to feel confident, not only of their decision to have accepted your job offer, but in their ability to perform the job itself.
