Drug And Alcohol Testing: Understanding Employer Obligations

Do you own, manage or work for a California business that plans to require drug and alcohol testing for prospective new hires? Before you proceed, consider hiring an experienced employment law attorney to ensure that you follow all applicable state and federal laws.

  • Unlawful drug testing
  • Inaccurate results and false positives resulting in infringements on workers' rights
  • Inconsistent application of mandatory drug and alcohol testing requirements leading to charges of racial discrimination or other forms of discrimination
