(A) Employees must, as a condition of employment, abide by the terms of this subchapter and report any conviction to the city under a criminal drug statute for violations occurring on or off city premises when conducting city business. Report of a conviction must be made to the city within five business days after the conviction. The city will then notify the appropriate contracting officer within ten days after receiving notice from either the employee or from another source. (These requirements are mandated by the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988.)
(B) An employee who is involved with off-the job illegal drug activity may be considered in violation of this subchapter. In determining whether disciplinary action will be imposed for this activity, the city will consider the circumstance of each incident, including, but not limited to, any adverse effect the employee’s actions may have on its customers, other employees, the public, or the city’s reputation and image.
(C) Any questions regarding the reporting of violations should be directed to the Clerk-Treasurer.
