- Drug-Free Workplace Advisor
Please note: The Department of Labor ended the drug-free workplace program in 2010. Accordingly, it does not currently administer a “Workplace drug testing” advisory web page and is not responsible for the content of the linked sites.
Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988
Penalties for Organizations
Your organization – if it is covered by the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 – will be subject to penalties if it:
- Fails to implement the six steps required to establish a drug-free workplace; or
- Employs individuals* convicted of a criminal drug offense in your workplace.
*Although the exact number of convicted employees is not specified in the Act, the contract or grant officer makes the determination on a case-by-case basis.
