D rug and alcohol tests in the workplace raise serious questions of personal privacy and autonomy. Because of this, Minnesota has one of the most restrictive drug and alcohol testing statutes in the United States. The Minnesota Drug and Alcohol Testing in the Workplace Act (DATWA) safeguards your privacy and autonomy by requiring employers to follow several guidelines and processes. As an employee, not only are you protected against unlawful drug and alcohol tests, but you are also protected against retaliation for reporting your employer when you believe it did not follow the requirements of DATWA.
If you believe your employer has overstepped the boundaries of drug and alcohol testing laws, Conners Law can help. DATWA is a nuanced law, and without a skilled advocate on your side, you may miss out on lost wages, benefits, and other damages to which you may be entitled.
