Failing Pre-Employment Drug Testing

Share This Post

With a growing economy, low unemployment rate and thousands of new jobs being created, manufacturing companies are being hit by potential employees failing pre-employment drug tests. The abuse of opioids and growing use of marijuana has resulted to half of applicants in the upper-Midwest failing their drug tests. Companies like Columbiana Boiler in Ohio are losing business to overseas rivals because of labor shortages. Failed pre-employment drug tests in Ohio are now at least 25% of applicants, consequently participation in the workplace is declining and small, rural economies are feeling the strain. Ohio has been hit the hardest by opioid overdose deaths because of the overabundance of prescribed opioids in the state. Passing drug tests in the Midwest is not the only financial impact, employees who become addicted to opioids while they are working is increasing health coverage rates for employers because of the high cost of drug treatments. Drug treatment costs can range from $1000 to $60,000 per person.

DrugTestKitUSA Payments built in partnership with Stripe

Security at Stripe: Learn how Stripe handles security.

A PCI-certified auditor has audited Stripe. We’re a certified PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry. To accomplish this, we use the best-in-class security tools and practices to maintain a high level of security at Stripe.

HTTPS and HSTS for secure connections

Stripe forces HTTPS for all services using TLS (SSL), including our public website and the Dashboard to ensure secure connections:

  • Stripe.js is served only over TLS.
  • Stripe’s official libraries connect to Stripe’s servers over TLS and verify TLS certificates on each connection.

We regularly audit the details of our implementation, including the certificates we serve, the certificate authorities we use, and the ciphers we support. We use HSTS to ensure that browsers interact with Stripe only over HTTPS. Stripe is also on the HSTS preloaded lists for both Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

Sensitive data and communication encryption

All card numbers are encrypted at rest with AES-256. Decryption keys are stored on separate machines. None of Stripe’s internal servers and daemons can obtain plain text card numbers but can request that cards are sent to a service provider on a static allowlist. Stripe’s infrastructure for storing, decrypting, and transmitting card numbers runs in a separate hosting environment, and doesn’t share any credentials with Stripe’s primary services including our API and website.
