    Misuse of Drugs or Alcohol

    PS-67, Revision: PS0067.R05, Effective: January 7, 2013

    Excerpt from PS-67: 

    Louisiana State University is committed to maintaining an environment which supports the research, teaching, and service mission of the University. Although the University respects an employee's right to privacy, the misuse of drugs or alcohol within the University community interferes with the accomplishment of the University's mission.

    Louisiana State Law prohibits the consumption, possession, distribution, possession with intent to distribute, or manufacture of drugs described as controlled dangerous substances in the Louisiana Revised Statutes 40:964; and other statutes define the illegal possession and/or use of alcohol. Further, various federal and state laws and regulations apply to the employees of Louisiana State University, including the Federal Drug Free Workplace Act of 1988; interim Department of Defense rules for a program to achieve and maintain a drug free workforce; The Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1989 (Public Law 101-226); State of Louisiana Executive Department Executive order No. BJ 2008-69; and Revised Statutes 49:1001-1021 of the State of Louisiana. This policy is specifically directed to describe and prohibit the misuse of alcohol and controlled drugs. Other University policies govern the permitted use of alcoholic beverages in its facilities and on its premises.
