Will a failed drug test show up on a background check?

Asked about 1 year ago - Monroeville, PA

I failed a drug test for worker's comp, and I was released from my job due to a zero tolerance policy. If I apply to another job that does a background check, will me being released from this job due to the test show up on the background check?

    I represent Employers, but I can recommend Worker Attorneys in So Cal if you ask.
