Practice/Industry Group Overview

To assist employers with their drug testing and substance abuse management objectives, Jackson Lewis attorneys advise clients concerning the legal issues and requirements imposed by federal, state and local laws and regulations.  We routinely prepare and review policies to ensure compliance with applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations requiring and/or regulating drug testing and substance abuse programs.  

We assist clients in making "reasonable suspicion" determinations, assessing methods of "random" testing, and determining appropriate disciplinary actions for substance abuse policy violators.  Our attorneys also draft agreements for employees who agree to enter treatment and rehabilitation programs, and we advise employers who oppose claims for unemployment compensation following termination for a positive drug test.
