Industrial Disputes

IFC offers advice, interpretation, reports, education and training and if required testimony in industrial disputes associated with drug and alcohol testing.

Typical Questions:

  • Compliance to the current Australian Standard
  • Assessment of Policies and Procedures
  • Acceptance of urine vs. oral fluid testing
  • Unfair dismissal due to workplace drug testing results - evaluate chain of custody; testing prcedures; training etc.
  • What do the results mean? Does this imply illegal drug use?
  • Are the results consistent with the declared medication?
  • Is the testing complaint?
  • Could the sample have been mixed?


IFC also regularly attend worksites to present or inform management; union officials and / or employees on the strengths and weakness of urine and oral fluid testing to allow for an informed decision when choosing a testing regime.


IFC are happy to address any of these questions or any others you may have and routinely provide advice, reports and testimony in a range of Industrial Disputes.
