Workplace Drug Testing Laws For Puerto Rico?
Puerto Rico implemented a drug testing statute that private employers must follow.
The intention of the statute is to promote the health and safety of workers and, consequently of the community in general, providing the safeguards needed for the protection of the intimacy and personal integrity of the individual thus affected.
The statute does not mention alcohol testing, but it is not expressly prohibited by law. Employers should review the statute carefully because it lists several positions that require mandatory testing.
The statute allows different modes of testing, the way it has been written can be inferred that the most appropriate mode of testing is using urine.
Puerto Rico passed its own Medical Marijuana Act, however nothing in the statute prevents employers from testing for Marijuana or its metabolites.
