A: Laws and company policies vary, but in general, employers have the right to enforce a drug-free workplace. If you are struggling with substance abuse, I would encourage seeking help and treatment. There are many resources and support services available.

A: As my colleague correctly advises, laws and company policies can vary. You could repost and add "Employment Law" as a category - it could have better chances of being seen by Ohio employment law attorneys. Good luck
