Workers Comp - What Happens If You Fail a Drug Test at Work
Workers' compensation is a program that is designed to protect employers and employees. The goal is to provide coverage without requiring proof that an accident was your fault. There are exceptions to this rule. For instance, an employee who has been prescribed medicinal marijuana could use this defense. Those who have been involved in fights at work may also have their benefits denied. Also, if the employer believes that your injuries are the result of a drug or alcohol use, they can refuse to pay you.
