Thank you for your question today, I look forward to assisting you. I bring nearly 20 years of legal experience in various disciplines.

No, the employer can't require you to pay for the drug test.

Colorado statute 8-2-118 states that an employer "may not require" an employee to pay the cost of a medical examination, to include drug testing.

Only applicants for a job itself can be required to pay the cost of furnishing records for their employment application.
