What Employers Need to Know about DOT Drug and Alcohol Testing
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.
Maine Bureau of Labor Standards model substance abuse testing policies are available here.
Drivers/employers subject to FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) drug and alcohol rules include anyone owning, leasing or driving a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) interstate or intrastate. A CMV is defined as:
- A vehicle with a gross vehicle weight or gross combination weight of 26,001 pounds or more
- A vehicle that can carry 16 or more passengers (including the driver)
- A vehicle of any size that transports hazardous materials and needs to be placarded
