Under Virginia law, there are almost no limitations of private employers to implement their own drug-testing policy. The state does provide employers workers’ compensation discounts if a drug-free workplace policy is implemented but gives discretion for the requirements to employers and its insurers. Virginia statute also allows workers compensation and unemployment denial but there are few restrictions of the requirements employers must meet.
