Summary of the Introduced Bill

HB 2195 -- Employment Security

Sponsor:  Secrest

Claimants for unemployment benefits will not be eligible for
waiting week credit or benefits for any week if the deputy or a
designated representative of the Division of Employment Security
finds that a claimant has been suspended for employee misconduct.
A professionally administered and documented positive chemical
test for a controlled substance as defined in Section 195.010,
RSMo, is deemed employee misconduct.  Claimants may become
eligible if they participate in a state-approved drug treatment
program.

Employers suspending or terminating employees pursuant to these
provisions must have publicly posted a drug-free work place
policy which warns that a positive drug test will be deemed
misconduct and may result in suspension or termination.
