About the program

Congratulations on your job offer with Legacy Health! The information below will guide you through the final pre-employment steps and prepare you for your orientation day. Please begin working on these steps right away, space is limited and onboarding appointments are available on a first-come basis.

The onboarding process

Onboarding consists of five steps which must be completed prior to your orientation / start date. You will be required to print out, read, and sign paperwork or follow specific directions. Do not begin this packet until you have officially been extended a job offer by a Legacy Recruiter.

Step 1: Schedule an Onboarding Appointment

Use the Full Slate site to schedule an onboarding appointment before your orientation / start date. Please select an appointment time as soon as possible. The ideal timing for the onboarding appointment is within one week of your hire date. If you are unable to find an onboarding appointment please contact your recruiter for assistance.

Step 2: Pre-employment Drug Screening

Print the Pre-Employment Drug Screening form and follow the directions. Please note: this step must be completed within 48 hours of your employment offer and before your onboarding appointment.
  • It is the policy of Legacy Health to maintain a workplace that is free from the effects of drug and alcohol abuse.
  • Legacy Health complies with the federal Controlled Substances Act and prohibits the use of marijuana along with other controlled substances.
  • Any applicant who refuses to consent to alcohol and/or drug screening, tampers with a sample or otherwise subverts the testing process, tests positive or otherwise fails to cooperate with the MRO (Medical Review Officer) or comply with any provision of Legacy Health’s Alcohol & Drug-Free Workplace policy may be subject to withdrawal of employment offer. Tampering includes any alteration or substitution of urine including dilution or presence of any agents which may mask the presence of drugs.

Pre-Employment Screening Procedures

1.  All applicants who receive a conditional job offer for any position must pass a pre-employment drug screen in order to obtain employment at Legacy. Applicants who refuse drug screening will not be hired.

  • Applicants will be referred by Legacy Employment Services for scheduling a drug test.
  • The pre-employment drug test must occur within 48 hours of acceptance of the job offer. If needed, exceptions will be made for out of town candidates. Candidates who do not comply will not be hired and will be subject to the same terms as a positive drug test. 
  • If a specimen is dilute, the applicant will be instructed to limit fluids and be allowed to provide one additional specimen within 24 hours. Only one retake will be allowed for dilute specimens. If the applicant has a medical condition that may contribute to or cause a dilute specimen, he/she should discuss that information with the Medical Review Officer (MRO). 
  • If a specimen is identified as invalid for any reason, the applicant must provide an additional specimen within 8 hours of notification by Legacy. Legacy Human Resources will contact the applicant and request an immediate return call. The additional specimen must be an observed collection by authorized personnel of the same gender. If the candidate does not return the call in a timely manner and/or complete the second test within the designated time period, the candidate will not be hired and will be subject to the same terms as if the result had been a positive drug test.  
  • Screening results will be sent to the designated contact person (Employee Health Nurse).  

2. The applicant’s start date for the position is contingent on the negative results of the drug screen.

3. Human Resources will notify the applicant of results that do not meet the criteria of Legacy’s policy.  When a licensed applicant tests positive on a drug screen, Legacy will also notify the appropriate licensing board in accordance with the applicable law.  

4. There will be no opportunities for a repeat drug screen if an applicant tests positive.

5. Applicants who test positive, have a second dilute specimen absent medical justification, or who do not comply with the 48 hour testing requirement will not be hired and may not reapply for one year within Legacy Health.
