Drug and Alcohol Testing Is Repealed



Effective September 30, 2009 subsections (C) through (H) of A.R.S. §23-1021 were repealed. This repeal eliminates the provisions that stated a work-related injury/death was not compensable if the employee was impaired due to alcohol or controlled substances and that impairment was a substantial contributing cause of the injury.

These changes also eliminated the provisions for an employer to have a policy of drug and alcohol testing as well as the provision that allowed an employer to file a written certification with the Commission related to their drug and alcohol program. As a result, the Commission's form Certification of Employer's Drug and Alcohol Testing Policy is no longer available, and the Commission no longer accepts attempted filings of the form.
