Minnesota Failed Drug or Alcohol Test Law


Trepanier MacGillis Battina P.A. can help you address a DOT (Department of Transportation) or Non-DOT drug and alcohol testing issue.

Under Minnesota law, a statute has been adopted that protects workers who are required to take drug and alcohol tests in the workplace. The statute is complicated, and many employers fail to properly comply with its requirements.

In some situations, drug testing is unlawful altogether. In other cases, employers who have not adopted a current drug testing policy may be in violation of the law. Sometimes test results are inaccurate and “false positive” drug test results are reported to the employer. Normally, you are entitled to a “confirmatory retest” to have the sample tested again. You are also entitled to notification of your rights.

If you were suspended or fired for a drug or alcohol test, you may be entitled to get your job back, lost wages and benefits, payment for emotional distress, and substantial money damages.
