§ 2-229.06. Reporting and conviction of alleged crimes including drugs or alcohol.  

Latest version.
  • (a) All employees must report to their supervisor any arrest, indictment or conviction of a drug or alcohol related violation or alleged violation of law not later than the next work day after the employee becomes aware of it. Failure to so report may result in immediate termination.

    (b) Upon conviction of a crime involving illegal drugs, the employee will be immediately terminated.

    (c) Without regard to prosecution or conviction by appropriate governmental entities, the city may, at its option, conduct its own independent investigation to determine whether or not there has been a violation of the city's drug and/or alcohol policy. If, in the opinion of the city, it believes a violation has occurred, it will take whatever disciplinary action it deems appropriate regardless of the ultimate outcome of any criminal case that may be brought against the employee.
