Being forced to take a drug test

Posted By: Rebecca Radosevich

Q

Can a Florida employer insist on a observed test after being employed for a period of time?

A

Your employer can insist on such a test, assuming you meant a drug test.  An employer can require drug testing as a condition of employment.  Florida has a detailed statute, called the Drug-Free Workplace Act, which sets forth a number of requirements for employers who implement drug testing pursuant to the statute.  Employers can also lawfully implement a drug testing policy outside of the requirements of the Drug-Free Workplace Act.

If you are referring to another kind of test, I will need some more information from you regarding the kind of test before I can answer your question.
