DOT delays rule involving drug testing

A change has been made in the effective date of the Department of Transportation's (DOT) drug testing procedural rule that requires employers to ensure that all follow-up and return-to-duty drug tests are directly observed, according to information published in the Federal Register.

In response to petitions from certain transportation industry and labor groups, DOT is changing the effective date of 49 CFR 40.67(b) from August 25, 2008, to November 1, 2008.
