FAA Proposes $295,750 Civil Penalty Against Skywest Airlines

The airline allegedly violated DOT drug and alcohol testing regulations.

The Federal Aviation Administration has proposed a $295,750 civil penalty against SkyWest Airlines, Inc. of St. George, Utah, for allegedly violating DOT drug and alcohol testing regulations. According to the FAA, SkyWest failed to include more than 150 safety-sensitive employees in its random drug testing pool. Furthermore, SkyWest allegedly failed to receive verified negative drug test results for two other employees before hiring one for, and transferring the other to, safety-sensitive positions.

Finally, the FAA alleges that SkyWest subjected three employees who were not in safety-sensitive positions to post-accident drug tests that are only applicable to safety-sensitive employees and improperly cancelled a return-to-duty test because it was not directly observed.
