Daneshvar Law

Can an employer ask an employee to take a drug test?

Yes, if the employee is a job applicant. On the other hand, if the person is already an employee, the employer usually must have some legitimate or important interest in requiring drug testing, such as a reasonable suspicion that the employee is using drugs. If the job involves certain safety issues, such as a job driving a passenger bus, the employer has greater rights to drug test the employee, even without giving you advance notice.
