CDL drug and alcohol testing

The University of Washington’s drug and alcohol testing program complies with Federal laws that prohibit covered employees from being under the influence of intoxicants while working; and that require testing for those who hold and use a commercial driver’s license (CDL) as a matter of employment. This policy only applies to UW regular and temporary employees who are required to possess a CDL as a condition of employment; and who must drive a vehicle that requires a CDL for operation.

The majority of the language governing the UW CDL Drug and Alcohol Testing Program is contained in UW Administrative Policy Statement 13.8.
