Facing Charges after Workplace Drug Testing?

Facing Charges after Workplace Drug Testing?

Are you facing drug charges from a test that was administered in the workplace? Do you have reason to believe that you were tested illegally in your place of work? If you answered "yes" to either of these questions, it may benefit you to contact a Plano drug crime attorney from Zendeh Del Law Firm.

Federal law places few limits on employer drug testing. While certain industries are required by the federal government to test employers (transportation, aviation, contractors with NASA and the Department of Defense, etc.), other occupational fields are not required or prohibited by the federal government to give drug tests.

Many states have passed laws that regulate or restrict an employer's rights to require drug testing; however, Texas is not one of them. Rather, Texas law does not address drug testing in places of private employment, which means that employers are free to require or ask employees to take drug tests as they please. This holds true unless the employer violates their employee's rights in the process.

Since Texas does not put restrictions on their workplace drug testing, employees who believe they were tested illegally will have to come up with proof in other ways. Drug charges have the potential to result in heavy fines, jail time, community service, and a mark on your criminal record.
