1-8 Drug-Free and Alcohol-Free Workplace
To help ensure a safe, healthy, and productive work environment for our team members and others, to protect Company property, and to ensure efficient operations, CODE Staffing has adopted a policy of maintaining a workplace free of drugs and alcohol. This policy applies to all team members and other individuals who perform work for the Company.
The unlawful or unauthorized use, abuse, solicitation, theft, possession, transfer, purchase, sale, or distribution of controlled substances (including medical marijuana), drug paraphernalia or alcohol by an individual anywhere on Company premises, while on Company business (whether on Company premises) or while representing the Company, is strictly prohibited. Team members and other individuals who work for the Company also are prohibited from reporting to work or working while they are using or under the influence of alcohol or any controlled substances, which may impact the team member's ability to perform their job or otherwise pose safety concerns, except when the use is pursuant to a licensed medical practitioner's instructions and the licensed medical practitioner authorized the team member or individual to report to work. However, this exception does not extend any right to report to work under the influence of medical marijuana or to use medical marijuana as a defense to a positive drug test, to the extent the team member is subject to any drug testing requirement, except as permitted by and in accordance with applicable law. This restriction does not apply to responsible drinking of alcohol at business meetings and related social outings.
The use of any illegal drug covered under the Federal Controlled Substances Act U.S.C. Title 21 Section 812 is prohibited. The use of marijuana for any purpose, including medical purposes, is also prohibited. Any illegal substance, drug, including illegal synthetics, or drug paraphernalia is prohibited on client Company property. Marijuana and marijuana paraphernalia is prohibited on client Company property.
We reserve the right to have team members drug and/or alcohol tested at any time upon determining reasonable suspicion. Violation of this policy will result in disciplinary action, up to and including discharge.
The Company maintains a policy of non-discrimination and will endeavor to make reasonable accommodations to assist individuals recovering from substance and alcohol dependencies, and those who have a medical history which reflects treatment for substance abuse conditions. However, team members may not request accommodation to avoid discipline for a policy violation. We encourage team members to seek assistance before their substance abuse or alcohol misuse renders them unable to perform the essential functions of their jobs or jeopardizes the health and safety of any Company team member, including themselves.
