Any employee, including a student employee, who works in any capacity under a federal grant or contract must notify his or her immediate supervisor of his or her conviction for a violation of any criminal drug statute (including misdemeanors) occurring in the workplace no later than 5 calendar days after such conviction. This applies to direct charge employees and to indirect charge employees who perform any support or overhead functions related to the grant. The supervisor must then promptly report the conviction to the Vice President for Human Resources. Under the Drug-Free Workplace Act, the University is required by law to report the conviction to the federal funding agency within 10 days of receiving notice of the conviction from the employee or from any other source.
If the University determines that a student under the age of 21 violated the Drug and Alcohol Policy, the University may disclose to a parent or legal guardian of the student, information regarding any violation of any federal, state, or local law, or of any rule or policy of the University, governing the use or possession of alcohol or controlled substances. If practicable, the student will be informed in advance that his or her parents or legal guardian are going to be given notice of the student’s violation of the University’s Drug and Alcohol Policy.
