As Pennsylvania does not have a state law that regulates or prohibits drug testing in the private sector, employers can set up drug free workplace programs. Private employers have flexibility in implementing drug testing policies that meet the needs of their organization, unless they are subject to certain Federal regulations, such as the DOT regulations for employees in safety-sensitive positions. Typically employers in Philadelphia will test under the following situations:
- Pre-Employment: Conducted to prevent hiring individuals who use drugs, it typically takes place after a conditional offer of employment has been made.
- Reasonable Suspicion: Conducted when supervisors have "probable cause" (i.e., documented, observable signs and symptoms) for suspecting drug use or a violation of the workplace drug policy. Supervisors must have comprehensive training in what behavior justifies such testing.
- Post-Accident: It is important to establish objective criteria that will trigger a post-accident test and how and by whom such tests will be administered. There should be reasonable suspicion that drugs or alcohol may have caused the accident.
- Random: Performed on an unannounced, unpredictable basis on employees whose information has been placed in a testing pool from which a scientifically arbitrary selection is made (i.e. computer generated).
- Return-to-Duty: A one-time, announced test when an employee has tested positive previously and has completed the required treatment for substance abuse and is ready to return to the workplace.
- Follow-up – after a return to duty these are unannounced tests once the employer has the return to duty test and resumes work after required treatment for substance abuse.
