What Are the Requirements For A Reasonable Suspicion Drug Test?
A reasonable suspicion drug test may be conducted if an employer has a good faith belief that an employee is under the influence of drugs or alcohol while on the job. This belief must be based on specific, contemporaneous, articulable observations concerning the appearance, behavior, speech, or body odors of the employee.
These observations should be made by a supervisor or manager who has been trained to recognize the symptoms of drug and alcohol use. The employer must also have a written policy in place that outlines the circumstances under which a reasonable suspicion drug test may be conducted.
