Hello from JustAnswer. This is Dr. Love.

Yes, I have heard of this. The MRO will assess the currently prescribed drug to be certain that it explains the positive drug test. In addition, when someone has a valid prescription for any controlled substances that explains the findings on the drug test, there are some employers that also want an independent assessment that the use of the controlled substance is not going to interfere with their job performance.

In your case, there is no reason for you to be concern. Whether the employer was using the MRO assessment for either purpose (or both), once the MRO tells you that you can go back to work, there will not be any ongoing issue for you.

If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.
