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”)
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 the 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.”
ASU provides drug-awareness programs and referrals to drug-rehabilitation programs through ASU Health Service, the Employee Assistance Office (EAO), and the student counseling centers at ASU.
