Drug Free Awareness Program

Georgia Career Institute is dedicated to providing quality education services to its students and a quality work environment for its employees. In keeping with this commitment, Georgia Career Institute will strive to maintain a workplace free from drug and alcohol abuse.

The manufacturing, possession, distribution, or use of illegal drugs or alcohol is prohibited in the workplace, including school grounds. Any violations of this policy will warrant disciplinary actions, up to and including termination, and may also result in local, state, and/or federal criminal charges.

Employees are to notify management of the school of any criminal drug statue conviction for a violation occurring in the workplace no later than five (5) days after such conviction. The employer will notify the United States Department of Education, Office of Student Financial Assistance, 400 Maryland Ave., SW, (ROB-3), Washington, DC 20202, of such conviction with ten days after receiving notice.

The school will assist employees and students in the selection of appropriate counseling, substance abuse assistance or rehabilitation programs. In addition, this school will not discriminate in employment solely on the grounds of prior drug or alcohol abuse or against individuals who have satisfactorily completed a rehabilitation program.

To ensure safety, security, and productivity, employees are to conduct business with the highest ethical standard and treat all students, co-workers, and business associates with fairness and integrity.
