Under Kansas law, there is no mandatory requirement for a private employer to implement a drug-free workplace policy. Drug testing requirements have been implemented in Workers’ Compensation and Unemployment statutes.
Employers in the private sector are ultimately free to create their policies, but they must abide by the statute if they wish to deny benefits due to positive test results.
Laboratories in Kansas are highly regulated. They must be appropriately licensed and certified to conduct chemical testing.
