The unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensing, possession, or use of a controlled substance is prohibited in the workplace. Michigan Tech policy on discharge states in part, "Major infractions which warrant immediate discharge of an employee by the University include, but are not limited to . . . drinking alcoholic beverages on the job, use of drugs in violation of the Controlled Substance Act." Discharge is not predicated on conviction. The University reserves the right, based on its own internal investigation, to discharge employees for the abuse of alcohol on the job and use of drugs in violation of the Controlled Substance Act.
