FEDERAL STUDENT FINANCIAL AID PENALTIES FOR DRUG VIOLATIONS:
Rules that apply to employees and students under the Drug Free Workplace Act In November of 1988, the United States Congress enacted the Anti-Drug Abuse Act which contains a section called “Drug Free Workplace Act of 1988.” The law requires employers who receive federal funds to notify employees that drug abuse is prohibited in the workplace; establish a drug free awareness program; require each employee to notify the college of any criminal conviction for violations occurring in the work place; and impose sanctions or remedial actions for convicted employees. In addition, a court may suspend or terminate an individual’s eligibility for federal benefits, including student financial assistance, if that individual is convicted of certain drug offenses. ◊ Please refer to the college’s Alcohol and Drug brochure for more information, and visit the FAFSA website “drug question” at www.fafsa.gov.
