Effective immediately, Berkeley Lab has revised the Workplace Substance Abuse policy. After reviewing DOE contract, federal, California, and UC requirements, the Laboratory completed a major rewrite of the policy and reorganized it for clarity and ease of understanding. The Laboratory recognizes dependency on alcohol and drugs as a treatable condition and offers services for employees with substance-dependency problems. Employees are encouraged to seek assistance, as appropriate, from employee-support programs, and counseling services available through the Laboratory’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP). This policy applies to all employees. Go here to read the revised policy.
