180.0 VII-1.10- UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND SYSTEM POLICY ON A DRUG-FREE WORKPLACE
 
 
  (Approved by the Board of Regents, January 2, 1989)
 
 
        The University of Maryland System, as an employer, strives
  to maintain a workplace free from the illegal use, possession, or
  distribution of controlled substances*.  Unlawful manufacture,
  distribution, dispensation, possession or use of controlled
  substances by University employees in the workplace is prohibited
  under University policy.
 
        In addition to any legal penalties under federal and state
  law, employees found to be in violation of this policy may be
  subject to corrective action under applicable University
  personnel policies.
 
        The University supports programs aimed at the prevention of
  substance abuse by University employees.  Employees are
  encouraged to seek assistance for substance-dependency problems.
  Employee-assistance counseling and leaves of absence to attend
  rehabilitation programs are appropriate means for dealing with
  these problems.
