NORTHERN MICHIGAN UNIVERSITY DRUG-FREE WORKPLACE ACT
INITIATED: December 4, 2002
POLICY REVIEWED: May 14, 2009
APPROVED: December 12, 2002
This policy establishes Northern Michigan University's Drug-Free Workplace requirements.
This policy pertains to all University employees, full-time, part-time, temporary, casual, students.
Northern Michigan University's policy in compliance with the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988, P.L. 100-690, certifies that we will maintain a drug-free workplace by prohibiting the unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensing, possession or use of any controlled substance by any employee in the workplace. Any employee violating this policy will be subject to disciplinary actions which may include 1) verbal warning; 2) written reprimand; 3) Suspension without pay; or 4) discharge.
The discipline administered will be reasonable in light of the violation and the employment history of the employee.
The University encourages counseling and rehabilitation for substance abusers and has made available employee assistance services, alcohol and drug education programs, and support groups for this purpose. Reasonable effort will be made to rehabilitate the employee: however, rehabilitation will not replace disciplinary action.
