Federal Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988

Any organization that enters into a federal contract for the procurement of property or services valued at $100,000 or more or receives any federal grant must follow the regulations of the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988.1 The act requires you to certify to the federal agency issuing the contract that you will provide a drug-free workplace.

This certification requires you to create a plan that provides for a drug-free workplace and to file that plan with the federal government. Marijuana remains a Schedule I drug under the Controlled Substance Act,2 therefore, employers must include marijuana prohibitions in their workplace policies.
