MGT150 – Fraud Prevention

The TTUS and TTU require, as a condition of initial and continued employment, that employees be free from the influence of alcohol and controlled substances. In departments where employees are required to submit to drug-testing, supervisors are charged with the responsibility of identifying when substance abuse might be occurring. At a minimum, the department must provide 60 minutes of training on drug and alcohol abuse by a qualified substance abuse professional to all supervisors who may be involved in determining if reasonable suspicion exists to require an employee to take an alcohol or drug test.

No supervisor shall determine if reasonable suspicion exists without the completion of the required training. It is the responsibility of each employing department requiring security-sensitive Level II and/or CDL safety-sensitive positions to follow the policies and procedures set forth in TTU OP 70.35 Drug and Alcohol Testing for Safety- and Security-sensitive Positions. It is recommended that supervisors refresh their training once every two years.
