Drug Free Workplace Act

The federal Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 applies to MSU and all of its employees, including student employees. Consistent with state and federal law, Michigan State University maintains a workplace free from the unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensation, possession, or use of a controlled substance. Such behavior is prohibited on any property under the control of and governed by the Board of Trustees of Michigan State University and at any site where work is performed by individuals on behalf of Michigan State University. These prohibitions also apply to employees performing safety sensitive functions and whose position responsibilities require they obtain a commercial driver’s license.

Employees who violate University policy prohibiting the use or possession of illegal drugs are subject to disciplinary action through the appropriate disciplinary process. For additional information please see the Drug and Alcohol Policy and the University Policy on Alcohol and Controlled Substances
