The Wyoming Fair Employment Practices Act prohibits discrimination in employment against qualified disabled individuals (WY Stat. Sec. 27-9-101et seq.). The law applies to private employers with two or more employees and all public employers. While the state law does not state whether alcohol or drug use falls into that category, current use of illegal drugs is not a protected disability under the federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Alcoholism is considered a disability, but federal law provides that an employer may hold an alcoholic employee to the same qualifications and job performance standards as other employees, even if unsatisfactory performance is caused by the alcoholism.
