Drug-Free Workplace Policy
In accordance with Section 22 of the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989, Los Angeles Harbor College strives to maintain a drug and alcohol free campus for its students and employees. The unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensation, use of, possession by students and college employees of illegal controlled substances or alcohol in all buildings, property, facilities, service areas, or on District business is prohibited (per Board Rules regarding Standards of Conduct, Section 9803.19).
The College maintains a drug and alcohol free awareness policy to inform students and employees about the dangers and health risks of drug and alcohol abuse in the workplace, on the campus and during college sponsored activities. Students and employees will be informed of the sanction that will be imposed for policy violations and the availability of drug/alcohol counseling, treatment, and rehabilitation assistance. This policy statement serves and the annual notification as required by law. All students and employees are required to comply with this policy as a condition of their continued student status or employment.
Any student or employee violating this policy may be required to participate satisfactorily in a substance abuse rehabilitation program, and/or may be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including, dismissal, or exclusion under applicable District Policies. In addition, an employee convicted of any workplace drug crime, must notify the college Personnel Office within five (5) days of conviction.
