I found these questions/answers at the site below and thought they might help you:

What will happen to me if the laboratory identifies my specimen as positive for one or more drugs, or as adulterated or substituted?

You will have the opportunity to speak directly with a Medical Review Officer (MRO). During your interview you will have an opportunity to provide information and/or medical documentation to explain/support why your specimen was positive, adulterated or substituted. Based on the information you provide, the MRO will “verify” your result by determining whether or not there is a legitimate medical reason for your test result. The MRO will report your result to your employer only after making this determination.

During the interview the MRO will ask if you would like to verify the laboratory’s result by having your split or “B” specimen (your primary specimen is the “A” sample) sent to another laboratory for analysis. You will have 72 hours from the time the MRO verifies your result to request an analysis of your “B” specimen. Who pays for the analysis is between you and your employer, but the MRO cannot reject or hold up your request because of payment issues.


What will happen to me if I violate a DOT drug & alcohol rule (e.g. test positive, or refuse a test)?

Your employer is required to immediately remove you from performing safety-sensitive functions. You will not be permitted to return to DOT regulated safety-sensitive functions until you have:

• Undergone an evaluation by a Substance Abuse Professional (SAP). Your employer must provide you with a list of SAPs that you can use;
• Successfully completed any course, counseling or treatment prescribed by the SAP prior to returning to service;
• Undergone a follow up evaluation by the same SAP to determine your compliance with their recommendations; AND
• Provided a breath and/or urine specimen that tests negative for drugs and/or alcohol prior to returning to DOT regulated safety-sensitive functions.

You will also be subject to unannounced testing for drugs and/or alcohol for at least 6 times during the first 12 months of active service with the possibility of unannounced testing for up to 60 months (as prescribed by the SAP).


Will I lose my job if I violate a DOT Agency drug and alcohol rule?

All employment decisions belong solely to the employer. DOT regulations do not address employment actions such as hiring, firing or leaves of absence. DOT and USCG regulation may prohibit you from performing your safety-sensitive functions after a positive test result or refusal to submit to testing. You should be aware that a positive, adulterated or substituted DOT drug or alcohol test may trigger consequences based on company policy or employment agreement.
