Tompkins Consolidated Area Transit, Inc. (TCAT) is committed to providing a safe, healthy, drug-free and efficient working environment for all employees. The Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 requires TCAT, as a federal contractor and grant recipient, to certify that it will provide a drug-free workplace. Accordingly, it is the policy of TCAT to maintain a drug-free workplace. As a condition of employment on such contracts and grants, employees will abide by the terms of this statement and notify TCAT of any criminal drug-statute conviction not later than five days after such conviction for a violation occurring in the workplace. The unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensation, possession, use, or sale in the workplace of a controlled substance, as defined by state or federal law, is prohibited. TCAT will not condone criminal activity on its property, or on property under its direct control (including buses), and will take appropriate personnel action up to and including termination or required participation in a drug-abuse assistance or rehabilitation program.

Safety Sensitive employees are subject to Drug and Alcohol Testing requirements as directed in the Federal Omnibus Transportation Employee Testing Act of 1991 and in TCAT policy.
