Workplace Drug Testing Laws in Wyoming
There are no specific state workplace drug testing laws in Wyoming. However, the state does offer employers who implement a drug-free workplace program a 10% per year discount on their workers’ compensation insurance premium base rates. The information below reflects the requirements for this discount program. In addition, employers who implement employee drug testing programs must follow all federal laws and avoid engaging in acts that can be construed as discrimination, defamation, and/or an invasion of privacy.
In addition to the information listed below, employers must also submit the state’s Drug-Free Workplace Discount Application each year and must provide a one-hour substance abuse training program for employees and a two-hour substance abuse training program for supervisors each year. Employers must also require 100% of job candidates to submit to pre-employment drug testing. Employers must randomly test a minimum of 20% of current employees each year as well as implement post-accident testing and reasonable suspicion testing.
