Controlled Substance and Alcohol Policy for Commercial Driver License Holders
Possessing, using, distributing, or being under the influence of prohibited substances while on the job or on college property is cause for termination of employment. “College Property” includes, but is not limited to, any college facilities, other college owned properties, parking lots, private roads, college-owned, rented or leased vehicles, and other equipment.
The use of prescribed substances or over-the-counter substances which may adversely affect performance or behavior must be reported by the individual to his or her supervisor upon reporting to duty. Misuse of over-the-counter or prescribed substances is prohibited.
Safety-sensitive positions (or functions) include full, part-time, and on-call driver positions that require a Commercial Driver License. These positions will be subject to testing. Testing will be conducted for the following reasons: preemployment (for controlled substances only), reasonable suspicion, post-accident, random, return-to-duty, and follow-up.
