|S.F. No. 1780 - Drug Testing of Professional Athletes|
|Author:||Senator Ann H. Rest|
|Prepared by:||John C. Fuller, Senate Counsel (651/296-3914)|
|Date:||March 31, 2005|
Minnesota Statutes limit the ability of an employer to test an employee or job applicant for drug and alcohol. These limitations apply to an employer doing business in Minnesota and having one or more employees. One of the types of testing that is allowed is random testing. However, an employer may request or require only employees in safety-sensitive positions to undergo drug and alcohol testing on a random selection basis.
Section 1 expands the class of employees who may be requested or required to submit to random testing for drugs and alcohol to include professional athletes.
