Zero Tolerance Intoxicating Substance Policy
DRUG & ALCOHOL POLICY
BEST RIDES TEXAS LLC
To establish guidelines that ensure a safe, healthy and productive drug-free work environment for the employees and independent contractors of BEST RIDES TEXAS LLC.
Being under the influence of drugs or alcohol while on the job poses a serious safety and health risk to the public and coworkers. Therefore, BEST RIDES TEXAS LLC has established the following policy to ensure a drug-free work environment:
BEST RIDES TEXAS LLC has zero tolerance for the use of alcohol, illegal substances, or the miss use of prescription medications during work hours or the presence of these substances in the body during work hours regardless of when consumed.
Drug and alcohol tests may be administered pre-employment, re-entry, post-accident, for cause or random.
A positive test result is any amount of alcohol or illegal substance as revealed by the test. The management will make the final decision as to a positive or negative test result. A positive test will result in immediate termination.
Alternate types of tests may be conducted when two or more tests within 12 months are found to be inclusive or a situation warrants such tests.
Failure to submit to a drug or alcohol test when requested or leaving the test site without completing the test is grounds for immediate termination. Other behaviors will be considered a refusal; tampering with the specimen or not reporting for a drug test without a valid reason immediately following an accident.
Each employee will sign a statement of understanding that, as a condition of employment, the employee or independent contractor will abide by the terms of the drug free workplace statement and notify BEST RIDES TEXAS LLC in writing of his or her conviction for a violation of a criminal drug statute occurring in the work place no later than five calendar days after such a conviction.
An employee or independent contractor may voluntarily come forward and ask for rehabilitation counseling. He or she would be suspended without pay until a substance-abuse professional could certify that the employee is fit to return to duty. Any employee or independent contractor with a substance abuse problem is encouraged to seek help through a professional qualified to provide such assistance.
The President of BEST RIDES TEXAS LLC will administer this policy.
