Notify Employees

Employers may also want to include in their written policy, the procedures that employees must follow when reporting a drug conviction occurring in the workplace. This notification must be made in writing to the employer within five calendar days of the conviction. The notification requirement does not apply, however, to drug offenses occurring outside of the workplace. Employees are not required to report drug arrests, only convictions.
