Can I Refuse To Take A Drug Test?

You can refuse to take a drug test, however, your employer may have the right to terminate you or refuse to hire you.

An employer may not fire an employee the first time he or she tests positive, but may do so if he or she tests positive more than once. Employers must offer employees who test positive six months of rehabilitation. Employees can be fired if they refuse rehabilitation.
