California Drug Testing FAQs

Do employers in California need to comply with mandatory state-specific rules when drug & alcohol testing?
Yes. California has rules based on court rulings, rather than legislative action.
Is a Drug-Free Workplace policy required in California?
No, however, employers are strongly encouraged to have a written policy in place (Policy is specifically required to comply with the California’s voluntary law). Employers are also strongly encouraged to warn employees and applicants and get signed acknowledgments of the warning, that the use of medication from a foreign source may cause a positive drug test.
What are some compliance requirements in California?
Random testing is limited to safety-sensitive employees only. Employers are encouraged not to let an applicant begin work before the pre-employment drug test result is known.  A reasonable suspicion test unsupported by facts is an unauthorized random test. Requiring a drug test collection during off-duty hours may be prohibited. Employers based in San Francisco are limited in what they can and cannot do, due to a city ordinance.
Are employers in California able to use drug screening for any other claim defenses or state-specific financial benefits?
Yes. 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.
Does California authorize marijuana (THC) or cannabidiol (CBD) use?
Yes. California permits the personal adult use and the medical use of marijuana for patients that meet specific medical conditions. The laws do not specifically impact employment drug testing programs.
Can I be fired or lose a job offer in California if I fail a drug test?
In California, if you test positive on a drug test it can be grounds for termination or a rescinded job offer.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 California?
In California, medical and recreational marijuana use is considered legal and cannot be used against you if you test positive, unless you are in a safety sensitive position.
