Like many states in the U.S., Pennsylvania has been dealing with a terrible opioid epidemic. In 2017 alone, more than half of all drug overdoses in Pennsylvania involved opioids, with more than 28,400 including fentanyl.
The tragic rise in drug use has caused many companies to implement pre-employment drug testing and drug free programs in the workplace. In the state of Pennsylvania, there are no laws addressing drug testing in private employment. All types of drug and alcohol testing are allowed in private companies including hair testing, EtG alcohol testing, instant or POCT drug testing, breath alcohol testing, urine drug testing which can include a 5 panel drug test or a 10 panel drug test.
