Substance Abuse Policy


It is the purpose of American Staffing to help provide a drug free environment for our clients and our employees. With this goal and because of the serious drug abuse problem in today’s workplace, we are establishing the following policy for existing and future employees of American Staffing.

American Staffing explicitly prohibits:

The use, possession, solicitation for, or sale of narcotics or other illegal drugs, alcohol, or prescription medication without a prescription on company or customer premises or while performing an assignment.

Being impaired or under the influence of legal or illegal drugs or alcohol off the company or customer premises that adversely affects the employee’s work performance, his or her own or others’ safety at the workplace, or the employer’s reputation.

American Staffing may drug test using N.I.D.A. standards by three methods:

Pre-Employment: As may be required by client.
Randomly: A random selection of some employees for testing may be done unannounced.
For Cause: When it is the company’s belief that a drug problem exists (such as evidence of drugs, accidents, injuries in the workplace, fights or other behavioral symptoms of drug abuse, negative performance patterns, excessive absenteeism or tardiness) for- cause testing will be utilized.

Employees of American Staffing who refuse to submit to drug testing, test positive or admit to substance abuse will be subject to termination.

Also, employees of American Staffing who test positive or admit to substance abuse may be referred to local public agencies that provide rehabilitation and counseling services, and be subject to disciplinary action including termination and/or removed from consideration for employment.

The results of all drug testing will be treated confidentially, and for no purpose other than for American Staffing to make employment-related decisions.
