Under Wisconsin law, there are very little limitations on the ability of private employers to implement their own drug testing policy. However, Wisconsin’s Workers’ Compensation statute indicates that employers should expect employees to obey reasonable substance use and abuse policies and provide notice to its employees of those rules. The only major restriction of mandatory drug testing is on contractors who are awarded public works contracts. Contractors are required to follow the regulations under substance abuse prevention on public works and public utility projects statutes.
