What is the Drug Testing Law? How does pre-and post-employment drug testing work? Who does it? How is it done? How can it work in UI administration?
UWC 37th Annual National UI Issues Conference - 2018 June 28, 2018
On June 28, Tony spoke during the 2018 Annual National UI Issues Conference on the topic of employer drug testing. This presentation addressed the significant questions arising out of continued legalization of medical and/or recreational marijuana use concerning the circumstances under which testing would be appropriate, who would perform the tests, and the effect on the eligibility of UI applicants as they filed continued claims. During his presentation, Tony reviewed the current laws on the subject, explained how drug testing is done, and gave suggestions as to how it could be more effective in assuring that individuals are able and available to work and prepared to effectively seek reemployment.
