Pre-employment Process

The Office of Human Resources Management and/or the hiring agency may have a pre-employment process for applicants in specified positions. A background verification, pre-employment medical examination and/or a drug and alcohol screening may be required as a condition of employment.

Background Verification

Background verification will be made on most applicants considered for employment. It may include checks of your education and experience indicated on your employment application, criminal background records, driving record, professional licenses and certifications and/or credit history. You may be required to sign a release authorizing the County to obtain your background information.

Pre-Employment Medical Examination

If indicated in the job announcement, an applicant must satisfactorily meet required medical standards for the job in a medical examination conducted by the County's occupational medical staff.

Drug and Alcohol Screening

Some applicants will be required to pass a urine drug and breath alcohol screening as a condition of employment. The hiring agency will schedule the test with an approved certified laboratory at the County's expense. The test must be completed prior to starting work. The test will detect the presence of alcohol for up to 24 hours and the presence of numerous drugs for longer periods of time. The applicant will be given an opportunity to identify any prescription or over-the-counter drugs taken. If the specimen is found to be positive for drugs and/or alcohol, applicants are entitled to have the same specimen tested independently at a different certified laboratory at the applicant’s own expense.
