Workplace Drug Testing Laws For Nevada

Under Nevada law, there are now limitations on private employers’ ability to implement their own drug-testing policy. Workers’ compensation laws in Nevada contain their own drug testing requirements.

Employers are not required to comply unless they wish to deny workers’ or unemployment compensation claims.

Employers should also keep in mind that Medical Marijuana is legal in the state of Nevada; therefore, employers should be conscious not to discriminate against an individual based on a medical condition even though they might test positive for Marijuana.

Beginning on January 1, 2020, employers will be prohibited from conducting pre-employment testing on most employees.
