Unemployment compensation; benefits disqualification. Disqualifies individuals from receiving unemployment compensation benefits on the grounds of employee misconduct where their employment termination results from failing workplace drug tests conducted as part of their employers' enforcement of workplace drug policies. The bill does, however, permit the Virginia Employment Commission to consider evidence of mitigating circumstances in determining whether disqualifying misconduct occurred. The bill also makes technical amendments concerning drug testing laboratory standards.
