SPP 315: Drug-Free Workplace Requirements
To promote and support a drug-free workplace for university employees
Omnibus Drug Initiative Act of 1988, Public Law No. 100-690 (“Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988”)
All regular classified employees, university staff, and non-faculty administrators
It is prohibited to unlawfully manufacture, sell, possess, distribute, dispense, or use controlled substances in the workplace.
As a condition of employment, each employee must agree to:
The Office of General Counsel will coordinate with the appropriate university office to determine if further reporting of the conviction to a federal agency within 10 days is required under the “Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988”; General Counsel will maintain appropriate records to verify compliance with legal reporting requirements of the act.
Within 30 days after receiving notice of the conviction, sanctions will be imposed on a classified employee according to university disciplinary policy and may include termination of employment or required participation in a drug rehabilitation program. However, appropriate disciplinary sanctions, up to and including termination of employment, may be imposed in the absence of a conviction after consulting with the Office of General Counsel and associate vice president of the Office of Human Resources, or OHR designee, as conviction is not a required precursor to discipline under SPP 809, “Discipline.” University staff and non-faculty administrators may be subject to the provisions of SPP 808, “Performance Management for University Staff” or SPP 1010, “Termination of University Staff.”
ASU provides drug-awareness programs and referrals to drug-rehabilitation programs through ASU Health Service, the Employee Assistance Office (EAO), and the ASU Counseling Centers.
