Drug Testing State Laws

Drug Testing State Laws

Resources for Employers from Workers’ Comp Resource Center

Many companies perform drug testing as part of their effort to reduce workers’ compensation costs. Companies use pre-employment (post-offer) drug and alcohol testing, as well as, post-accident and random drug testing.

Mandatory State: In these states, if a private employer chooses to conduct workplace drug/alcohol testing, the employer must follow state rules.

Voluntary State: In these states there are incentive programs designed to encourage workplace drug/alcohol testing programs. Please consult counsel for other rules that might apply.
