Drug Testing in the Workplace

Vermont's drug testing law is one of the most restrictive in the nation. Vermont allows employers to require applicants and employees to take drug tests, in limited circumstances. Employers are not required to drug test and are not allowed to conduct random testing. A Vermont employer may require an applicant to take a drug test only if the applicant has received a job offer conditioned on a negative test result.

The employer must give applicants a written notice that includes:

  • An explanation of the testing procedure
  • A list of drugs to be tested for
  • A statement that therapeutic levels of prescribed drugs will not be reported

Employers in Vermont may test employees for drugs only if all of the following are true:

  • The employer has reasonable cause to believe that an employee is using drugs or is under the influence
  • The employer has an employee assistance program (EAP) that provides for rehabilitation
  • Employees who test positive and agrees to enter the EAP may not be terminated
  • Random testing is prohibited except for DOT testing

The employer must contract with a Medical Review Officer (MRO) who reviews test results and keeps them confidential. The officer must contact employees or applicants to explain a positive test result. Employees and applicants have the right to an independent retest at their own expense.

An employee who tests positive and agrees to enter the EAP or rehabilitation program may not be terminated. However, the employee may be suspended for up to three months to complete the program. If the employee subsequently tests positive, the employee may be terminated.
