It is BAN Electric Services desire to provide a drug-free, healthful, and safe workplace. To promote this goal, employees are required to report to work in appropriate mental and physical condition to perform their jobs in a safe and satisfactory manner.
While on BAN Electric Services premises and while conducting business-related activities off BAN Electric premises, no employee may use, possess, distribute, sell, or be under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs. The legal use of prescribed drugs is permitted on the job only if it does not impair an employee’s ability to perform the essential functions of the job effectively and in a safe manner that does not endanger other individuals in the workplace.
If BAN Electric Services has a Drug Free Workplace Program, or if you are in a position requiring drug testing under state or federal law, you will be subject to drug testing under certain circumstances, in accordance with applicable laws. In this event, you will either have the opportunity to review or will receive a copy of the Drug Free Workplace policy.
Violations of this policy may lead to disciplinary action, up to and including immediate termination of employment. Such violations may also have legal consequences.
Under the Drug-Free Workplace Act, an employee who performs work for a government contract or grant must notify BAN Electric Services of a criminal conviction for drug-related activity occurring in the workplace. The report must be made within five days of the conviction. 11
