AS 23.10.630. Collection of Samples.

(a) An employer may test an employee for the presence of drugs or for alcohol impairment. An employer may test a prospective employee for the presence of drugs.

(b) In order to test reliably, an employer may require an employee or prospective employee to provide a sample of the individual's urine or breath and to present reliable individual identification to the person collecting the sample. Collection of the sample must conform to the requirements of AS 23.10.600 - 23.10.699. The employer may designate the type of sample to be used for testing.

(c) An employer shall normally schedule a drug test or an alcohol impairment test of employees during, or immediately before or after, a regular work period. Alcohol impairment or drug testing required by an employer is considered to be work time for the purposes of compensation and benefits for current employees. Sample collection shall be performed in a manner that guarantees the individual's privacy to the maximum extent consistent with ensuring that the sample is not contaminated, adulterated, or misidentified.

(d) An employer shall pay the entire actual costs for drug testing and alcohol impairment testing required of employees and prospective employees. An employer shall also pay reasonable transportation costs to an employee if the required test is conducted at a location other than the employee's normal work site.
