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.
