The Maine Department of Lab maintains a web page to assist employers with drug testing - Substance Abuse Testing Law

Maine employers need to have a strongly written substance abuse/testing policy in place.  Maine employers that have taken the time to construct a written policy with proper testing procedures tend to be successful with deterring potential legal issues as well as resolving them if they arise.  In Maine, before establishing any substance abuse testing program for employees, an employer with over 20 full-time employees must have a functioning employee assistance program.  A written drug free workplace policy is required in Maine.

Certified laboratories must be used for drug testing in Maine.  A testing laboratory shall perform a screening test on each sample submitted by the employer for only those substances of abuse that the employer requests to be identified. If a screening test result is negative, no further test may be conducted on that sample. If a screening test result is positive, a confirmation test shall be performed on that sample. A testing laboratory shall retain all confirmed positive samples for one year in a manner that will inhibit deterioration of the samples and allow subsequent retesting.

Random drug testing should be limited to safety sensitive positions.  Random drug testing in Maine for safety sensitive employees is a deterrent to drug use and can identify substance abusers.  An effective random drug testing program will lead to a safer workplace.

Maine employers need to be careful about terminating an employee for a first time positive drug test. An employer may not discharge an employee for a first-time positive unless he refuses to participate in or he fails to successfully complete treatment; must allow 6 months for treatment.  Employees may be suspended with pay while awaiting the result of a drug test.

In Maine, employers many deny workers compensation benefits and unemployment benefits based on a positive drug or alcohol test.  Workers compensation benefits are not allowed if at the time of the accident the employee was intoxicated. 

Point of Collection Testing (POCT) is allowed in Maine.  In Maine, the substances that can be tested are determined by the Department of Health and Human Services, as are the screening and concentration levels at which they can be tested. The table below summarizes the screening and confirmation concentrations of the testable substances.
