Who pays for the follow-up tests?
DOT doesn’t specify who pays for these tests. As an employer, this is a decision that you can make. It could also be affected by labor agreements that you may have. You can decide to pay for all of the follow-up tests, or you may split the cost with the employee, or you may pass the entire cost along to the employee. Whatever you decide to do, it would be well for you to include this information in the policy that you have distributed to your employees.
