faaThe U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes a $266,375 civil penalty against Allegiant Air, LLC of Las Vegas for allegedly violating drug and alcohol testing regulations.

The FAA alleges Allegiant failed to include in its random drug and alcohol testing pools 25 employees that it hired or transferred into safety?sensitive positions. Eleven of these employees performed safety-sensitive duties on multiple occasions when they were not in the random pools, the FAA alleges.

The FAA also alleges another employee’s follow-up test was not directly observed after a previous positive drug test result as required by DOT regulations. That employee performed multiple safety-sensitive duties following the improperly observed test, the FAA alleges.

Allegiant is scheduled to meet with the FAA in mid-June to discuss the case.
