Kansas law doesn’t put any limits on workplace drug testing. Kansas has no law addressing drug testing in private employment. This means that drug testing is not prohibited or restricted. Private employers are therefore free to implement drug testing programs at their own discretion.
Although an employer has the legal right to test, it must follow the state’s requirements. A Kansas employer that doesn’t provide the required notice of its testing policy or observe state procedural rights (for example, by failing to conduct a confirmation test after an initial positive result or by allowing unauthorized personnel to perform the test) could face legal problems.
Employers with a drug-free workplace program must have a written policy in relation to administering workers’ compensation and unemployment benefits. It must be made known to the employees that the policy includes alcohol and controlled substance testing as a required condition of employment.
In 2013, calling drug addiction a “scourge in Kansas,” Gov. Sam Brownback signed into law Tuesday a bill to test welfare and unemployment recipients suspected of using illegal drugs. Kansas’ plan hinges on reasonable suspicion. The drug screening program is for applicants and current recipients of cash assistance when reasonable suspicion exists that the person is using controlled substances.
Marijuana is the third most popular recreational drug in Kansas behind only alcohol and tobacco.
On-site or instant testing in Kansas is controversial, the Department of Health requires all drug tests to be performed in a laboratory licensed by the state.
Employers in Kansas can save money with a post-accident drug test, and a workers’ compensation claim can be denied with the intoxication defense. The law states “the employer shall not be liable under the workers’ compensation act where the injury, disability or death was contributed to by the employee’s use or consumption of alcohol or any drugs, chemicals or any other compounds or substances, including, but not limited to, any drugs or medications which are available to the public without a prescription from a health care provider, prescription drugs or medications, any form or type of narcotic drugs, marijuana, stimulants, depressants or hallucinogens….. it shall be conclusively presumed that the employee was impaired due to alcohol or drugs if it is shown that, at the time of the injury, that the employee had an alcohol concentration of .04 or more, or a GCMS confirmatory test by quantitative analysis showing a concentration at or above cutoff levels” – There are other aspects of the workers’ comp laws that must be adhered to. An employer must be diligent in its fight to deny a claim but it can be successful, it starts with a well-written drug-free workplace policy.
Kansas employers can deny unemployment benefits to employees terminated for a positive drug or alcohol test.
Kansas has workers’ compensation reduction and unemployment denial laws that contain specific drug testing requirements for qualification. Expert assistance is needed for compliance to take advantage of the benefits offered. National drug screening can assist with a comprehensive drug-free workplace policy.

Detectable up to 80 hours after ingestion, the presence of both ETG and ETS in Urine is a reliable confirmation method and indicator of ethanol ingestion. ETG detects recent ingestion more accurately and for a longer period of time than standard alcohol tests.
Hair Drug testing provides up to a 90-day detection of repetitive, long-term drug use patterns. It is an ideal solution for pre-employment and random testing. When compared to urine and oral fluid testing, hair testing provides nearly twice the number of positives and a longer detection window. Many individuals need a court-ordered hair drug test.
