Q:           “Do I have to drug test all of my employees?”
A:            No.  Drug testing will apply to new hires, after accidents, on reasonable suspicion and post treatment.

Q:           “Do I have to fire an employee who tests positive for drugs?”
A:`          No, you may fire an employee, or refer them for treatment.

Q:           “Can I afford drug treatment costs?”
A:            Only limited drug testing is required, and the Chamber can provide resources that offer discounted rates for members.

Q:           “It’s hard to find workers now.  Will this limit the pool of workers I can draw from?”
A:            If you choose to do so, you may limit the positions you test for to “safety-sensitive.”
