Stryker Drug Testing Policy

Do any of you know what Stryker's policies are in states that have legalized marijuana? This may sound like a joke but it is a question that is confusing with the new state laws and many of the home offices based in states who may not follow the same state laws.

If you happen to live in Colorado would they let a positive test pass since it is legal?

This is actually a very important topic and one that many companies are discussing at a high (no pun intended) level. As an example, Citigroup is reevaluating its policy on testing job applicants for marijuana use as Wall Street banks weigh whether or not to work with the industry. . In NYC, the City Council passed a bill last week that would bar employers in the city from forcing job applicants to test for marijuana use. This would affect banks headquartered in NYC.

Don't think for a minute it hasn't been discussed within HR and executive management at Stryker and other employers in the industry.

Even if Stryker or another medical device company approved a program like this, sales reps that go to hospitals that require reps to get drug tested would still be out of luck. I still have 2 hospitals that make me get drug tested once per year and I do not know what they test for.

The fact that prospective employees, and let's be honest, current Stryker reps, have to ask about the drug testing policy is incredibly fitting. Lay down the pipe, needle or pills and worry about getting the job and keeping the job. There are more important things in this world than juicing up or smoking weed.

I don't know if there are any Canadian Stryker employees on here but I would like to know how Stryker is handling their drug testing policy for Canada now that marijuana is legalised in our country?

The pre-employment screen is what I am looking to know about.

I do not live in Canada but do live in a state where marijuana is legal and work for Stryker. There have been no official announcements (as expected) in my division about marijuana use. Stryker is a private employer so they can do what they want. This isn't right in my opinion but they do it anyway. Stryker and other companies are going to have to get their head out of the sand soon or there will be lawsuits if marijuana use is used as a reason for firings. The other issue is that hospitals still test for drugs (including marijuana) so if you test for it, they could prevent you from coming into their facility.

The end result could be like what happened to this guy who used medical marijuana to ease the pain of his cancer treatments. He tested positive and his employer suspended him. Not a good look for the employer. Employers need to realize that marijuana is legal is several states now and medical marijuana is legal in many more than that.

Since Stryker does not give sales reps cars do they still do a a full driving record search?

Isn't the simple solution to stop smoking or doing edibles for a month prior to your drug test? If you are a moderate smoker, you should be able to get it all out of your system within 30 days. If you only do edibles then it should only take around 15 days tops to get it out.

Want to be safe, do your own drug test at home before you go in so you know you are safe. This way you can always cancel and give yourself more time if you fail your at home test.

More than anything, this whole thing is stupid. Every adult with kids that I know smokes weed. It's literally crazy how many adults smoke or do edibles these days. It should be legal and HR departments should look past Marijuana.

I don't understand why you need to use illegal drugs. All I need is a Xanax and a beer and I'm good.

the fact that you are comparing using a needle or pills to smoking pot is pathetic and laughable.

It is laughable but they are the same in corporate America.

Laying down pipe is what I do best. Give me a perc and some Molly and I'll beat it up all night

They should have to pass an IQ test. But then again that would eliminate most of the salesforce.
