Drug Testing State Laws
May 11, 2010 in Employee Drug Testing Information
Each state has its own body of laws which concern workplace drug testing or monitoring. For example, Alaska has no mandatory drug-testing laws but does have voluntary drug-testing laws that employers must follow if they chose to conduct drug-testing of job applicants or employees.
In many states, employers have the legal right to test job applicants for drugs or alcohol provided the applicants know that the testing is part of the interview process for all employees.
In most situations, the testing cannot be conducted until the applicant has been offered a position. Click on State Laws.
