Does Lowe’s Drug Test Employees? 

Lowe’s Code of Business Conduct and Ethics does not explicitly mention alcohol and drugs. However, the document does talk about workplace safety.  That is, Lowe’s is committed to protecting the health and safety of everyone, and this commitment extends to maintaining a violence-free workplace.   

Pre-employment Drug Testing

Job candidates who got an employment offer are generally asked to take a drug test, which can occur on the same day of the interview or scheduled days later together with a background check. The company typically uses a mouth-swab test for applicants.  The offer is contingent on passing those pre-employment tests.

Drug Testing during Employment

The company may require an employee to take a drug test in connection with a workplace accident or injury. The drug test can be urine or saliva drug test. 

The Answer

Lowe’s is known to drug test future and current employees. The implications of testing positive for illegal drugs may result in the conditional offer being rescinded or meting out disciplinary actions stated in the code.
