Federal statute relating to drug abuse policies that requires all employers with federal contracts at least equal to $25,000 to certify, as a condition of receiving a federal contract, that the employer will provide and maintain a drug-free workplace. In addition, a recipient of a federal grant (award of financial assistance that includes block grant and entitlement grant programs), as well as an independent contractor, must certify that the employer will provide and maintain a drug-free workplace. This act also requires federal contractors and grantees to publish and distribute a policy statement stating the prohibitions against the unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensation, possession, or use of controlled substances in the workplace. An ongoing drug-free awareness program must be established warning employees of the dangers of drug abuse.
