Our intent is to make Tennessee drug screening compliance as simple as possible. You don’t have to be a constitutional law scholar to conduct workplace drug testing in this state.
Tennessee is a “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. Testing is your choice; however, there may be federal rules to consider that may restrict your program in other ways.
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 Tennessee drug and alcohol compliance issues you may face when testing.
This state has no known statutes restricting workplace drug or alcohol testing and no known regulation limits workplace drug or alcohol testing. Since there are no known state statutes, regulations, or court decision existing 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.
