As part of the omnibus drug legislation enacted November 18, 1988, the U.S. Congress created the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 (Public Law 100-690, Title V, Subtitle D). This statute requires that contractors and grantees of Federal agencies certify that they will provide drug-free workplaces. The statute was implemented by the Interim Final Rules published in the Federal Register, Vol. 54, No.19, Tuesday, January 31, 1989.
Under these rules, the University of North Texas is required to certify to the Federal government that it is providing drug-free workplaces. This policy implements the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 at the University.
This policy is in addition to and not in lieu of any other University policy. The University reserves the right to take disciplinary action against employees regarding misconduct under this or other applicable policies of the University.
