Will drug test results show up on employment background check?

    I took and failed a urine test for a temp agency job over 15 years ago, was pulled off the job I'd already been sent to.

    Today I filled out a consent to a background check for a new job, and among the things it said could be found were drug test results. I'd thought drug test results were confidential between the testing agency and the employer who orders the test.

    Can that failed drug test show up on a background check? And if so, is there anyway to clear that from your history so that it won't show up in the future?

    IMO if it was a test not related to a legal system situation (criminal/probation/parole) then the answer is no it will not show up.

    Note, this is not legal advice.
