Our intent is to make Mississippi drug screening compliance as simple as possible. You don’t have to be a constitutional law scholar to conduct workplace drug testing in Mississippi.
Mississippi is an “Open” state, which means there are no state statutes, regulations, or known court decisions that would limit your choices for implementing a drug or alcohol testing program or any aspect of it. Testing is your choice but, there may be federal rules to consider.
This overview is to introduce you to the nature and history of the state’s workplace drug testing rules and to provide a basic understanding of the compliance issues you may face when drug and alcohol testing in Mississippi.
This state has no known statutes restricting workplace drug or alcohol testing. No known regulation limits workplace drug or alcohol testing. Since there are no known state statutes, regulations, or court decisions in this state, you may be free, within the limits of applicable federal rules, to draft any policy you wish, and to implement whatever testing program makes business sense to you. It is advisable to conduct testing according to the accepted standards of practice in the drug testing industry. No drug test regulations exist in this state.
