Under Nebraska law, private employers are not required to perform drug tests on their employees. The intent of the Nebraska legislature is to help with the treatment and elimination of drug and alcohol use and abuse in the workplace while protecting employee’s rights. If an employer chooses to implement a drug testing policy, the employer must abide by Nebraska’s statutory requirements. The requirements are broad; the statute does not restrict the circumstances in which employers can test employees, rather they set guidelines for specimen collection for drug testing.
