Pennsylvania Drug Testing FAQs

No. Pennsylvania does not have any mandatory drug testing statutes or regulations but it is recommended.

Yes. Employers may be able to leverage an ‘Intoxication’ defense to a Workers’ Compensation Claim, based on a positive drug test result.

Employers wishing to leverage either of these benefits must voluntarily comply with very detailed program rules.

Employers are limited in actions based solely on an individual’s status as a certified medical marijuana user. Medical marijuana employee/patient prohibitions exist, especially in safety-sensitive positions. Employers are strongly encouraged to indicate in their policy that marijuana use is prohibited.
Can I be fired or lose a job offer in Pennsylvania if I fail a drug test?
In Pennsylvania, if you test positive on a drug test it cannot be grounds for termination or a rescinded job offer.

Providing Drug and Alcohol Testing to Pennsylvania Residents

US Drug Test Centers make it easy to order a drug test. We can screen for many substances individually, or you can order them as a panel, where we test for several substances in a single panel. For instance, we offer a 5-panel urine drug test, which screens for amphetamines, marijuana, cocaine, opiates, and PCP, all via a urine sample.

In addition, we offer court-ordered drug testing. This is suitable for DUI, child custody, and probation cases where individuals are required to stay sober.

The Drug Testing Process for DOT Companies

Are you an employer or owner-operator employed by the Department of Transportation (DOT)? The DOT has even stricter guidelines around drug testing, particularly for professionals in safety-sensitive positions. Individuals in safety-sensitive positions sometimes work directly with the public and also inherently experience a greater risk in their roles.

US Drug Test Centers will help you stay compliant with state laws and federal law so that you can always pass a DOT audit. Compliance is key!

Why Choose US Drug Test Centers?

If you or an employee need to undergo drug testing, why partner with us? Here are just a few ways we stand out from other providers.

Accuracy is Paramount

We only partner with SAMHSA-certified laboratories, which have to follow specific rules when it comes to their equipment and drug testing procedures. Additionally, all drug test results are verified by a medical review officer (MRO), who is a licensed physician.

This is important because let's say, for example, an employee gets a positive test result but thinks their prescription medication might've led to a false-positive. An MRO can help confirm if the positive result is accurate or not.

This is how we're able to provide the most accurate and thorough drug test results in the drug testing industry.

Convenience is Key

We have more than 20,000 drug testing locations nationwide, so we're never more than a short drive away, no matter where you are in Pennsylvania.

Do you need drug testing in a hurry? Some of our locations accept same-day appointments.

We also offer instant/POCT urine drug testing. Negative results are returned the same day. In addition, you can request onsite mobile drug testing. A trained collector will meet you or your employee within two hours to begin the drug testing process.
