HR414 - Drug and Alcohol Testing


Policy

Section: Human Resources

Employees who operate College vehicles are subject to drug and alcohol testing if a commercial driver’s license is required to operate the College vehicle and the College vehicle has a gross combination weight rating of 26,001 or more pounds inclusive of a towed unit with a gross weight rating of more than 10,000 pounds; has a gross vehicle weight rating of 26,001 or more pounds; is designed to transport 16 or more passengers, including the driver; or is transporting hazardous materials as defined by law. For purposes of drug and alcohol testing, the term “employees” also includes applicants who have been offered a position to operate a College vehicle.

The employees operating a College vehicle as described above are subject to pre-employment drug testing and random, reasonable suspicion, post-accident, return-to-duty, follow-up drug and alcohol testing and any other testing required by law. Employees governed by this policy shall be subject to the drug and alcohol testing program beginning the first day they operate or are offered a position to operate College vehicles and continue to be subject to the drug and alcohol testing program as long as they may be required to perform a safety-sensitive function.

It is the responsibility of the President to develop procedures and/or administrative regulations to implement this policy.
