Drug testing by employers in Connecticut is governed by these state rules.
An employer may not require a prospective employee to submit to a urinalysis drug test as part of its job application procedure unless:
Generally, for employees, random testing is not permitted but testing may be done upon reasonable suspicion of being under the influence. There is an exception for employees in safety-sensitive positions and those participating in an employee assistance program.
An employee who left employment and is currently being rehired by the same employer within 12 months of termination is excluded from the category of prospective employees. These persons are considered employees for purposes of the state's drug testing law.
