Workplace Drug Testing Laws For Delaware

Delaware's workplace drug testing regulations are primarily established under Delaware Code Title 19, §§ 711-720. While employers can maintain drug-free workplaces, they must also ensure fair and nondiscriminatory practices, especially in the context of medical marijuana users.

Marijuana in Delaware: Medical marijuana is legal and requires a prescription from a licensed physician. As of my last update in January 2022, recreational marijuana was not legal, but this may have changed. It is essential to check the latest state laws or news sources.
