Failing a DOT drug test


A year ago i failed a DOT regulated drug test through Lofton staffing services. It was really bad judgement on mt part and i have been clean and motivated ever since. Recently i just got offered a job with a new company and passed a DOT regulated test. Just when I think im in the clear i run into a road block and dont know what to do. Filling out the pre-employment packet i find a form about authorization to release DOT drug test results. It asks me to check this box if you have tested positive for an employer who did not hire you during the past two years. I dont know if I should come forward with the company and tell them or if i should keep that off the form and let them figure it out. Any suggestions?

Go ahead and lie about it.

If they call you out say you were high and forgot about it when you doing the paperwork.

be honest, they will most likely find out. i can access employee records online if they have ever been employed with a company that uses the same system as us, and if they have worked in the Industrial field, chances are they have...

My dad has a trucking company, and has dealt with this before. I'd tell them. They may just ask you to take a drug test again for them, and if you're almost sober then you'll be good to go.

You have no choice but to tell the full truth. If you lie on your application, not even the Teamsters Union can save your job, no matter how long it takes for the company to find the truth.

Not just truck drivers. All pipeline companies must do DOT drug tests.

They are legally obligated to contact your previous employers over the previous two years and ask for your DOT records. Don't lie, they'll find out.
