Workplace Drug Testing Laws for South Carolina

The State of South Carolina has implemented drug and alcohol testing regulations which include a provision for obtaining a discount on workers’ compensation premiums; however, these regulations do not mandate all circumstances in which an employer can conduct a test.

South Carolina adopted this voluntary statute to encourage employers in the state to adopt drug prevention programs in the workplace. However, employers are not obligated to follow the discount program.

For those who opt-in, the program does require random drug testing on all paid employees. Marijuana remains illegal for medical and recreational use.
