Alaska Drug Testing FAQs

Do employers in Alaska need to comply with mandatory state-specific rules when drug & alcohol testing?
No. Alaska does not have any mandatory drug testing statutes or regulations but it is recommended.
Is a Drug-Free Workplace policy required in Alaska?
No, however, employers are strongly encouraged to have a written policy in place (Policy is specifically required to comply with the states’ voluntary law).
Are employers in Alaska able to use drug screening for any other claim defenses or state-specific financial benefits?
Yes. Employers can protect themselves from lawsuits so long as they follow the detailed rules of the Alaska’s ‘Immunity statute.’ Employers may leverage an ‘Intoxication’ defense to a Workers’ Compensation Claim, based on a positive drug test result. A positive drug test may also make an employee ineligible for unemployment compensation. Employers wishing to leverage either of these benefits must voluntarily comply with very detailed program rules.
Are employer's in Alaska limited with drug testing methods?
No, there are no limitations (although the Alaska’s voluntary law does prohibit onsite (POCT) testing). It is recommended that all confirmation testing be conducted by a SAMHSA certified laboratory (as generally accepted and specifically required by voluntary law).
Does Alaksa authorize marijuana (THC) or cannabidiol (CBD) use?
Yes, Alaska permits the personal adult use and the medical use of marijuana, and related products. The law does not specifically impact employment drug testing programs.
Can I be fired or lose a job offer in Alaska if I fail a drug test?
In Alaska, if you test positive on a drug test it can be grounds for termination or a rescinded job offer.
What are the medical and recreational marijuana-related rules in Alaska?
