Q: If my employer gives me a drug test do I have a right to the reports, statements, and results regarding the drug test?
I passed the test, of course. It was during an investigation that HR was looking into. I had called about my supervisor, Curtis and his discrimination against me.
I have to ask for documentation of certain things. But I'm wondering if I have the right to all documents regarding that drug test.
A: By law the employer has to make these records available for your inspection and copying, but only upon your request. The law is found at Title 40, Section 556, the Standards for Drug and Alcohol Testing Act. I recommend you make the request in writing. If you have questions, feel free to contact me. There are civil penalties for violating the Act.
