There are benefits of drug testing for employers regarding the denial of a workers’ compensation claim. Full denial of a claim occurs if intoxication is the cause of the accident. There is a 10% reduction if intoxication is the only contributing factor. Employee testing must follow DOT regulations in order to use the drug test results as proof of intoxication.

A five-panel drug test is required with testing at a certified laboratory and results reviewed by a medical review officer (MRO).
