(1) The Tribe as an employer is a drug and alcohol-free workplace. The Tribe is committed to protecting the safety, health and well-being of all employees and other individuals in our workplace. We recognize that alcohol and drug abuse pose a significant threat to the health, safety and welfare of the greater community. We have established a drug-free workplace program that balances our respect for individuals with the need to maintain an alcohol and drug-free working environment.

(2) This policy applies to all Tribal employees. However, employees may be subject to additional drug and alcohol testing if required by applicable laws and/or because such testing is required in order to qualify for or hold their position (for example, where testing is required for a license or certification required for the position). In these cases, the applicable drug and alcohol testing requirements will supersede, and employees may be required to undergo certain pre-employment testing, post-accident testing, random testing, reasonable suspicion, return-to-duty, and follow-up testing that may be different than the testing required under this policy. Whenever possible, employees will be notified of any additional requirements at the time they apply for the position. Employees who operate commercial motor vehicles are subject to DOT testing requirements.

(3) The Tribe sometimes employs minors under the age of 21. It is illegal for any person under 21 years of age (minors) to consume, use, possess, purchase or obtain marijuana and alcohol. All minors are required to submit to a pre-employment drug test. The Tribe will test for all controlled substances listed in RCW 69.50.204 (Schedule I), including marijuana. The Tribe will also test for alcohol. Any minor testing positive for Schedule I substances or alcohol will be disqualified for employment with the Tribe in compliance with the Tribe’s employment disqualification procedures.

(4) Any questions regarding the Tribe’s Drug-Free Workplace or Drug and Alcohol Testing policies, or any additional drug and alcohol testing requirements should be directed to Human Resources. [Res. 2022-10-016 § 1, 2022.]
