Abstract:

Employee drug testing was implemented as part of an effort to achieve a drug free workplace within the Federal government as mandated in September 1986 by President Reagans Executive Order 12564. The executive order requires the head of each executive agency to establish a program to test employees in sensitive positions for the use of illegal drugs.
