Summary as introduced:
Substance abuse assessment and screening; unemployment benefits.  Provides that an unemployed individual is not eligible to receive unemployment benefits until a representative of the Virginia Employment Commission has screened the individual to determine whether probable cause exists to believe the individual is engaged in the use of nonprescribed controlled substances. If a screening indicates reasonable cause to believe an individual is using illegal drugs, the Commission shall require a formal substance abuse assessment of the individual, which may include drug testing. An individual who fails or refuses to participate in a screening or assessment without good cause or who tests positive for the use of a nonprescribed controlled substance shall be ineligible to receive unemployment benefits.
