Executive Order 930, the CSU Drug-Free Workplace Policy, is in compliance with the federal Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 (41 U.S.C. 701) and the California Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1990 (Government Code § 8350 et seq.).

The California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB) is committed to maintaining a workplace free from the unlawful manufacture, possession, distribution, dispensation or use of controlled substances, as defined in schedules I through V of the Controlled Substances Act (21 U.S.C. §812) and 21 C.F.R. Part1308. 

Employees violating this policy shall be subject to discipline, up to and including dismissal. Discipline shall be imposed in a manner consistent with the applicable labor agreements, CSU policies, and law. In addition to, or in lieu of discipline, CSU may, at its discretion, require employees violating the policy to participate satisfactorily in an appropriate drug abuse rehabilitation program.

Proposition 64 Does Not Alter Policy
The recent passage of Proposition 64 by California voters does not alter the Drug-Free Workplace Policy. Marijuana remains a controlled substance under federal law. Nothing in Proposition 64 changes the obligations of CSU to maintain a drug-free community, prevent illegal drug use, and discipline employees who unlawfully manufacture, possess, distribute, dispense or use illegal drugs on university property or activities.


This policy applies to CSUSB employees. 'Employee' means a person legally holding a position in CSUSB.

The CSUSB drug-free awareness program includes the following resources:

  • Executive Order 930
  • A description of the dangers of drug abuse in the workplace and the health consequence of alcohol and drugs generally (see Alcohol and Drug Policy);
  • A description of drug counseling, treatment, or rehabilitation programs available to employees:
    • EAP
    • CSUSB medical insurance plans
    • Note: Please contact the Human Resources Benefit Manager for information about drug counseling provided through the EAP, to learn what services are covered for substance abuse under your individual medical insurance plan.
  • A description of the penalties that may be imposed on employees for drug abuse violations occurring in the workplace are listed in the second paragraph above.
  • The general laws applicable to alcohol beverages and controlled substances can be found in the Alcohol and Drug Policy.
