SCS/SB 114 - This act deems a positive test result for drugs (controlled substances)as misconduct connected with work. Claimants suspended or terminated for a positive drug test are ineligible for benefits. Such claimants may become eligible if they participate in a state approved drug treatment program.

Employers suspending or terminating employees pursuant to this act must publicly post a drug-free work place policy which warns that a positive drug test will be deemed misconduct and may result in suspension, drug treatment intervention, or termination.
