Drug Screening in Malaysia
There is no legislation that currently covers drug screening in Malaysia as it is a newer process. It is up to each company to decide on how or if they would like to use drug screening as part of the pre-employment screening process. It is suggested that the Ministry of Health is contacted with any questions on using drug screening with regards to employment.
Before conducting a background check on an individual in Malaysia it is important to obtain the individual's written consent to do so. The official privacy law that exists in Malaysia is the Personal Data Protection Act 2010 which regulates how personal data is processed in commercial transactions. The Act provides individuals the right to access, correct and control the processing of their personal data. Data users are required to keep the personal data they obtain safe from loss, misuse and unauthorized or accidental disclosure. Once the data provider is finished with the personal data it should be destroyed.
