Under North Dakota law there is limited restrictions on employers to implement a drug-free workplace policy.

North Dakota has passed statues allowing the use of medical marijuana. However, the statute states that the Act does not intervene with an employer’s ability to discipline and employee who uses Marijuana on the premises or reports to work under the influence.

North Dakotas worker’s compensation statute sets a few requirements that employers must abide if they want to deny benefits to employees who are injured due to their voluntary intoxication.

The unemployment statute does not provide any rules required for drug testing; employers are still required to inform employees that a violation of work policy including a drug testing policy is considered misconduct.
