Substance Abuse Policy

(YOUR COMPANY LETTERHEAD)

(Your Company Name) is committed to providing a safe work environment and to fostering

the well-being and health of its employees. That commitment is jeopardized when any (Your

Company Name) employee illegally uses drugs on the job; comes to work under the

influence; possesses, distributes or sells drugs in the workplace; or abuses alcohol on the job.

Therefore, (Your Company Name) has established the following policy:

1.It is a violation of company policy for any employee to use, possess, sell, trade, offer

for sale, or offer to buy illegal drugs or otherwise engage in the illegal use of drugs on

the job.

2.It is a violation of company policy for anyone to report to work under the influence of

illegal drugs or alcohol.

3.It is a violation of the company policy for anyone to use prescription drugs illegally.

(However, nothing in this policy precludes the appropriate use of legally prescribed

medications.)

4.Violations of this policy are subject to disciplinary action up to and including

termination.

It is the responsibility of the company's supervisors to counsel employees whenever they see

changes in performance or behavior that suggest an employee has a drug problem. Although

it is not the supervisor's job to diagnose personal problems, the supervisor should encourage

such employees to seek help and advise them about available resources for getting help.

Everyone shares responsibility for maintaining a safe work environment, and co-workers

should encourage anyone who has a substance abuse problem to seek help.

The goal of this policy is to balance our respect for individuals with the need to maintain a

safe, productive and drug-free environment. The intent of this policy is to offer a helping hand

to those who need it, while sending a clear message that the illegal use of drugs and the abuse

of alcohol are incompatible with employment at (Your Company Name).
