Workplace Drug Testing Laws for Kentucky

Kentucky has a Drug-Free Workplace program that establishes the requirements for employers to apply and be certified by the Department of Workers’ Claims for implementing a drug-free workplace program.

To promote working environment safety and work productivity employers may be eligible to receive a 5% discount on their workers’ compensation premiums. Application for this discount must be done annually and employers and supervisors must have maintained drug and alcohol training annually.

The law is very comprehensive and provides detailed guidance on drug and alcohol testing. Employers should review the statute to ensure all requirements are complied with before applying for the workers’ compensation discount.
