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.
