Alcohol & Drug Testing (CDL)

The Federal Omnibus Transportation Employee Testing Act of 1991 requires testing for alcohol and prohibited controlled substances (i.e., amphetamines, cannabinoids [marijuana], cocaine, opiates, and/or phencyclidine [PCP]), hereafter referred to as “drugs,” for employees who must maintain a commercial driver's license (CDL) as a condition of employment. Types of testing include pre-employment (drugs only), random, reasonable suspicion, and post-accident.

Human Resources is responsible for implementing the university’s Alcohol & Drug Testing policy (#0-611) by administering the Alcohol & Drug Testing program, which includes information on prohibitions prescribed by law, notice and education/training requirements, and the testing process and procedures.

Compliance with applicable collective bargaining agreement provisions is required.
