Drug-Free Workplace

In accordance with the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 (Pub. L. No. 100-690, 5151-5160), all Ursinus College employees are on notice that the unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensing, possession or use of a controlled substance is prohibited in the workplace.

Employees in violation of this probation will be subject to disciplinary action, including discharge under college work rules.

In addition to this notice, employees must notify the President of Ursinus College of any criminal drug statute conviction for any violation occurring in the workplace no later than five days after the conviction.

All employees are further advised that the College, upon being advised by an employee that the employee has been convicted of a criminal drug statute violation occurring in the workplace, will so notify any appropriate federal funding agency within ten days, and will, within thirty days:

• take appropriate personnel action against such an employee, up to and including termination, or

• require the employee to participate satisfactorily in a drug abuse assistance rehabilitation program approved for such purposes by a federal, state, or local health, law enforcement, or other appropriate agency.

The College offers drug-free awareness programs to inform employees about the dangers of drug abuse and information about available drug counseling and rehabilitation.
