Company Drug Testing in Massachusetts

Drug testing is more important than ever, especially with the rise in recreational marijuana use. Drug abuse at work can lead to an increase in accidents and crime, as well as employee turnover. Plus, it hurts productivity and morale. Overall, substance abuse in the work environment costs employers tens of billions of dollars every single year.

This is why it's vital to address drug testing head-on.

Need help managing your workplace drug testing? US Drug Test Centers works with businesses in the state of Massachusetts. Here's how:

  • We provide all types of drug testing, including random testing, reasonable suspicion screening, pre-employment drug testing, post-accident testing, and return-to-duty drug screening.

  • We'll carefully craft your drug-free workplace policy manual. This covers details like how you manage random drug testing (and how you protect employees from bias in your random drug testing program), your rules around medical marijuana, and what happens if an employee receives a positive drug test result.

  • US Drug Test Centers can run all of your background checks. Order and review them electronically.

We offer all of the same screening options and services. We'll help you stay compliant with Massachusetts law, as well as federal law, so that you can pass a DOT audit at any time.

Our testing locations do not accept payment and require a drug test order form at the time of testing. Please click the "Order a Test" button to order your test. Once your order has been processed, your drug test order form will be emailed to you. Testing options may vary on a site by site basis. Additional fees may apply depending on your location.

Massachusetts Drug Testing FAQs

Do employers in Massachusetts need to comply with mandatory state-specific rules when drug & alcohol testing?
Yes. Massachusetts has rules based on court decisions versus legislative actions.
Is a Drug-Free Workplace policy required in Massachusetts?
No, however, employers are strongly encouraged to have a written policy in place (Policy is specifically required to comply with the states’ voluntary law).
What are some compliance requirements in Massachusetts?
Random testing is limited to safety-sensitive employees only.  Employers should only conduct post-accident testing when they have reason to believe the individual(s) caused or contributed to the incident.
Are employers in Massachusetts able to use drug screening for any other claim defenses or state-specific financial benefits?
Yes. Employers may be able to leverage an ‘Intoxication’ defense to a Workers’ Compensation Claim, based on a positive drug test result. However, no specific rules exist. A positive drug test may also make an employee ineligible for unemployment compensation if terminated for misconduct. Employers wishing to leverage either of these benefits must voluntarily comply with very detailed program rules.
Does Massachusetts authorize marijuana (THC) or cannabidiol (CBD) use?

Massachusetts has authorized the personal adult use and the medical use of marijuana. While employers are still permitted to enforce workplace policies and are not required to accommodate marijuana use while at work; the state’s medical marijuana law does limit employer actions. Employers are prohibited from discriminating against a qualified person due to their status as a medical marijuana patient.

Can I be fired or lose a job offer in Massachusetts if I fail a drug test?
In Massachusetts, if you test positive on a drug test it cannot be grounds for termination or a rescinded job offer.
What are the medical and recreational marijuana-related rules in Massachusetts?
In Massachusetts, 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.
