What is a Designated Employer Representative (DER)
The Designated Employer Representative, or DER, is an employee authorized to take immediate action to remove employees from (or have them removed from) safety-sensitive duties and to make required decisions in the testing and evaluation processes. The DER also receives test results and other communications for the employer. Only an employee (or the employer directly) may act as a DER. This is one of the only roles that a service agent can never perform.
