Can My NJ Employer Ask Me To Take A Drug Test | NJ Employee Rights

By Thomas McKinney

Can an employer in NJ ask you to take a drug test?  Yes, if you are applying for the job. However, if you are already an employee of the company and it does not have a random drug testing policy, the employer must have some legitimate reason or suspicion to require that you take a drug test.  Your employer may require drug testing for current employees if your job involves certain safety issues.

If you have any questions regarding whether your NJ Employer can require you to take a drug test, please contact our NJ Employment Lawyers for a free consultation.
