Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988
Penalties for Organizations

Your organization – if it is covered by the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 – will be subject to penalties if it:

  • Fails to implement the six steps required to establish a drug-free workplace; or
  • Employs individuals* convicted of a criminal drug offense in your workplace.

*Although the exact number of convicted employees is not specified in the Act, the contract or grant officer makes the determination on a case-by-case basis.
