Drug Testing in Ohio

Filed under Office & HR.

Drug testing by employers in Ohio is governed by these state rules.

Ohio's fair employment practices law does not prohibit an employer from adopting or administering reasonable policies or procedures, including, but not limited to, testing for the illegal use of any controlled substance, that are designed to ensure that an individual who has been successfully rehabilitated or who is participating in a supervised drug rehabilitation program is no longer engaging in the illegal use of a controlled substance.

However, Ohio's drug testing law does not encourage, prohibit, or authorize the conduct of testing for the illegal use of any controlled substance by employees, applicants, or other persons, or the making of employment decisions based on the results of that type of testing.
