Drug and Alcohol Tests are not compulsory on the Sidekicker platform, however, some shifts may require you to complete one.
How do I complete a Drug and Alcohol Test?

When booking your appointment, you will need to request an instant pre-employment urinary drug and alcohol test. This way, you'll receive your results faster, and it's cheaper than a lab test.
Attend your appointment and complete your drug and alcohol test. Don't forget to bring a photo ID and avoid drinking too much water before your appointment. You can read more about this, and what to expect here
As the test is instant, you should be sent your results on the day of your test. When you receive your results, you can upload it under the Drug and Alcohol Test certificate on your profile here, or forward it to our team at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note, we can only accept negative results. If your result is positive or non-confirmatory we will not accept your test result
Do I have to do my test through Jobfit?
Completing your test through Jobfit is not compulsory. If you prefer, you can book a test with your local GP and request a urine drug and alcohol test. You'll need to make sure the test satisfies Australian Standards AS/NZS 4308:2008.
What is the difference between an instant test and a lab test?
Sidekicker requires you to complete an instant drug and alcohol test and you should mention this when booking. This means you will receive results on the same day as the test.
Lab tests are about $20 more expensive and your results can take 3-4 days, depending on the pathology provider.
