An offer of employment is contingent upon the successful completion of a pre-employment drug screen and background check.  As marijuana is an illegal substance under federal law, testing positive for marijuana (medical or otherwise) or any other substance for which the Makhaira Group tests, will result in the contingent offer of employment being revoked.  A successful completion of the drug screen is defined as obtaining a negative result.

Continuation of employment is contingent upon the results of a criminal background and motor vehicle record check.  Paraclete Security Solutions is a division of Makhaira Group.
