The education program shall be conducted semi-annually for one hour for employees. Supervisors shall have an additional 2 hours of training which includes, but is not limited to, recognizing signs of employee substance abuse and the actions that may be taken.

Confirmation costs and expenses are to be paid by the employer. additional costs (i.e. retesting) not required by the employer are payable by the employee or job applicant.

Subject to classifications of job positions, Limited testing of job applicants are allowed under the program.

Employees or applicants must be given the opportunity to contest or explain positive test within five days of receiving results.

Routine  and random testing may be authorized as well as  testing on reasonable suspicion, or, as part of fitness-for-duty exam, or after on- the-job injury, or as follow-up to a rehabilitation program. Employees must receive 60 days' advance notice of the testing policy. The policy must be conspicuously posted.
