In what state is this occurring?
The testing itself isn't illegal. What would be illegal is disciplining or discharging your employment because of off-the-job use of tobacco products. Likewise, it isn't illegal to have a no more than 30% increase in insurance costs on an employee who smokes (on or off the job).
