Effective February 28, 2000, the Northern California Laborers Training Center has implemented a drug testing program. This program is for all apprentices and trainees who enroll in any course of one week or longer in duration at the Training Center.
The drug testing program has the purpose of: protecting the health and safety of apprentices, trainees, and staff at the Training Center and on job sites; encouraging freedom from drug dependency; and enhancing worker reliability, employability, and job safety.
All apprentices and trainees will be required to submit to a drug test. This test will be conducted by an independent laboratory approved by the Department of Health and Human Services. Guidelines have been set so that all results remain confidential.
Any apprentice or trainee who refuses to take, or fails to pass, the drug test will not be allowed to attend any classes at the Training Center. Any individual who fails the drug test will be referred to an assistance program and will be administratively suspended from the Training Center until he/she successfully completes the treatment program prescribed by the assistance program and provides proof of completion.
