    Default How Long After an Injury Should a Drug Test Be Taken

    I am just curious how long after an injury on the job, does the employer have to get you to take a drug test? Is there a time frame or can they do it whenever they want?

    Depends on the statutes... drug testing may/may not be mandatory, or permitted.
    There could be all kinds of reasons for a positive drug screening...

    IF on the other hand, you are in a pain management program...periodic drug screening would be appropriate.
