Drug-Free Work Place Policy


Cumberland University seeks to provide an illegal drug-free workplace that promotes a safe work environment. The conduct of the employees affects the service the University provides to each other and to the students. If employees use drugs and/or alcohol while at work or if they come to work impaired, their ability to perform their job is diminished and the employee of Cumberland University may endanger his/her own safety as well as the safety of others.

 

In compliance with the federal Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988, the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1989, and the federal Drug-Free Schools and Campuses regulations, Cumberland University has adopted a policy that requires faculty and staff members of the University to comply with federal, state, local and University laws in relation to alcoholic beverages, narcotics, and other drugs.
