In response to federal requirements for drug-free workplaces, and in keeping with the company concern for the health and safety of its work force, a Drug-Free Workplace Policy should be instituted. The Drug-Free Workplace Acknowledgement Template is a formal notice of the company’s intent to take disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment, against any employee who violates the Drug-Free Workplace Policy. EMH510-3 DRUG-FREE WORKPLACE POLICY EMPLOYEE ACKNOWLEDGEMENT states that the company’s Drug-Free Workplace Policy prohibits the use, sale, distribution, manufacture or possession of all controlled substances as listed in Schedules I through V of Section 202 of the Controlled Substance Act.
Company policy also prohibits the performance of work or presence at any company building, facility, equipment or work area/site while under the influence of a controlled substance. In addition to any disciplinary action, the company may, in its sole discretion, refer the employee to a treatment and counseling program for drug abuse. Employees referred to such a program by the company must immediately cease any drug use, may be subject to periodic unannounced testing for a period of twenty-four (24) month, and must comply with all other conditions of the treatment and counseling program.
