Do pre-employment screenings test for Suboxone?

Most of the time, standard drug screening panels do not test for Suboxone. 

Suboxone screening is usually a separate test that must be ordered. However, it is not impossible that an employer might screen for Suboxone in addition to the routine drug panel. 

On the other hand, even if that result was to come back positive, it is illegal for an employer to refuse employment or to fire an employee for being on Suboxone, so long as it is prescribed legally by a licensed provider.
