Current Bill Summary

SB 1149 - This act requires an employee of a construction company to submit to a drug test before working on the property of a school. If a test result is found positive for illegal drugs, as determined by a medical review officer, the employee may not work on any school project. Upon such a determination, the employer may take action against the employee up to and including termination. The employer may also require the employee to participate in a drug abuse assistance or drug rehabilitation program. If the employee yields a negative result that result shall stand for one year and the employee shall be able to work on any school project without further testing. The Department of Health and Senior Services shall administer the program.

This act is similar to SB 492 (2005).
