Frequently Asked Questions about Drug and Alcohol Testing in Santa Rosa

  • Is it okay to drug test if we don't have a drug testing policy in place?
    • Not a good idea from a liability perspective. Just think about what you will do if the person tests positive. Your best practice and to be safe from liability is to have a drug free workplace policy prior to drug testing employees. Custom written drug testing policies are available from US Drug Test Centers.
  • Can I fire an employee for being on drugs or for suspecting they are on drugs?
    • You should have a company drug free workplace policy stating the consequences of a positive drug test. You can fire an employee for a violation of your company policy. It is not a best practice to fire someone based on suspicion of drug use. Always check with your human resources and/or legal departments.
  • With all this Medical Marijuana, Can I Maintain a Drug Free Workplace?
    • Yes, with medical and recreational marijuana, employers still need to maintain drug free workplace programs. Various federal laws require all employers to provide a safe and healthy work environment and those with certain safety-sensitive jobs or who have federal contracts or grants to maintain a drug-free workplace. Employers whose businesses are related to public safety and security must be able to ensure their employees are not impaired while at work. Otherwise, employers face litigation of a different sort: lawsuits caused by impaired employees that involve injuries or deaths among fellow employees or the general public.
    • In States with medical and/or recreational marijuana, employers may choose whether to make an exception for medical marijuana use. But, if that is an exception that an employer decides to make, it must be an exception that is applied after a thoughtful consideration of all the safety and business risks involved and done in a manner in which the employer does not unnecessarily expose itself to potential claims for discrimination (particularly if the exception is granted to some but not all employees).

Drug Free Workplace Policy and Programs

Employers need to establish a program that will ensure that all employees are not in any potential danger arising from injuries or accident due to alcohol and drug misuse. It is every employer’s duty to ensure a safe and healthful working condition for all employees. Employees must take reasonable care for their own health and safety and that of others, and cooperate with the employer with respect to action taken by the employer to comply with company alcohol and drug policy regulations.

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.
