If an employee informs the employer that they are using a CBD product, what is the employers responsibility if that employee is in a safety-sensitive position?
The employer’s responsibility is to explain that there is no exception (under DOT regulations) for the use of any product that presents as THC metabolites and exceeds set thresholds on a DOT drug screen. If it is non-DOT, they should refer to the company policy. If the policy accepts CBD oil, then that should be communicated.
What are you the current number of states where marijuana is legal (CBD only or Mixed)?
Please review our map of marijuana legalization.
Can DISA report to the Clearinghouse for me?
Employers must designate DISA as their C/TPA in the Clearinghouse and let us know they want us to report on their behalf so we can update their settings in DISAWorks.
Do different testing policies for different clients have different saturation levels as a threshold for positive vs. negative tests?
YES - All drug testing policies have a testing “panel.” Testing panels consist of substances and level thresholds (limit of detection). DISA offers policies with customized panels, in addition to policies that require standard/regulated panels. (Please note, all DOT and some safety-sensitive, non-DOT drug testing programs have mandatory testing panels)
