Connecticut Drug Testing FAQs

Do employers in Connecticut need to comply with mandatory state-specific rules when drug & alcohol testing?
Yes. Connecticut has very specific rules for employers that wish to conduct employee drug testing.
Is a Drug-Free Workplace policy required in Connecticut?
No, however, employers are strongly encouraged to have a written policy in place (Policy is specifically required to comply with the Connecticut’s voluntary law).
What are some compliance requirements in Connecticut?
Post-accident/incident testing is prohibited; employers must be able to show reasonable suspicion and thoroughly document the circumstances. Employers must get state approval before being able to conduct random testing (job-specific). An employee’s consent to submit to a drug test is invalid if there is a threat of termination.
Are employers in Connecticut able to use drug screening for any other claim defenses or state-specific financial benefits?
Yes. Employers may leverage a 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 Connecticut authorize marijuana (THC) or cannabidiol (CBD) use?
Yes. Connecticut permits the medical use of marijuana for patients with limited medical conditions.  This law prohibits employers from discriminating against an employee solely based on that individual’s status as an authorized medical marijuana user. The law does permit employers to discipline for marijuana use or impairment while at work. Court decision ruled in favor of an employee, citing in part that the federal Controlled Substances Act (CSA) does not overrule the state’s medical marijuana law.

In Connecticut, if you test positive on a drug test it can be grounds for termination or a rescinded job offer.
