The Maine Substance Abuse Testing Law (Title 26 MRSA, Section 680 et seq) controls employer drug testing not performed in response to federal mandates.
Any company that wants to have a substance abuse testing program (but is not required to under federal law) must submit a policy to the Maine Bureau of Labor Standards for review and approval.
