Creating New Knowledge
Final regulations implementing the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 were published in the January 31, 1989, Federal Register.
The Act requires all institutions receiving federal grants and contracts to certify that federally-funded activities will be carried out in a drug-free environment. By law, federal agencies cannot award grant monies after March 18, 1989, without certification that appropriate drug-free workplace programs have been implemented by recipient institutions. Northwestern University's Statement on a Drug-Free Workplace is detailed in a March 15, 1989, memo to University faculty and staff from former University President Arnold R. Weber.
Copies of the statement may be requested from Office of Equal Opportunity and Access. Additional text regarding this issue can be found in the Northwestern University Human Resources Policies and Procedures Handbook and in the Employee Handbook.
