RANDOM DRUG TESTING PSA:
Section IX: Drug and Alcohol Policy: E.2.a. Random Testing:
“All employees of the Club will be subject to random testing for alcohol, non-prescribed drugs, or controlled substance abuse. Random testing will be done on a percentage basis in a fair and equal manner. Test results indicating that an employee has alcohol, illegal drugs or non-prescribed drugs in his/her system will be verified by further tests on the original samples taken. Verified positive results will result in immediate termination.”
Section IX: Drug and Alcohol Policy: E.2. Employees: Random, Reasonable Cause, and Post Accident Testing
“Any employee that refuses to submit to a controlled substance screening will be terminated from employment. Refusal can include an inability to provide a sufficient specimen or breath sample without a valid medical explanation, as well as verbal declaration, obstructive behavior, or physical absence resulting in the inability to conduct the test.”
