What is “Shy Bladder”

what is “Shy Bladder” drug testing
The term “shy bladder” refers to a situation when the employee does not provide a sufficient amount of urine (45 mL) for a DOT-required drug test. The collector explains to the employee the process for a shy bladder collection and urges the employee to drink up to 40 ounces of fluids, distributed reasonably through a period of up to three hours, or until the individual has provided a sufficient urine specimen, whichever occurs first. It is not a refusal to test if the employee declines to drink.
