The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs has recently launched a new webpage, Resources for Federal Contractors and Workers Related to Past Drug Misuse (dol.gov/agencies/ofccp/drug-misuse) that provides information and resources for federal contractors and workers related to their obligations and rights concerning the past misuse of drugs.

Under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, individuals who previously misused drugs may be considered qualified individuals with disabilities if they are no longer engaged in the illegal use of drugs and either have been successfully rehabilitated or are participating in a supervised rehabilitation program.

The new webpage provides information to:

  • Federal contractors on how to comply with their obligations under Section 503
  • Workers and applicants on their rights related to this medical condition.
