3.51 / Pre-Employment Drug Screening

  1. Policy

    A drug test will be administered to a candidate and the results kept confidential (as required by K.S.A. 75-4362, K.A.R. 1-2-20, K.A.R. 1-6-33, K.A.R. 1-9-25, and K.A.R. 1-9-26) upon a conditional offer of employment for designated safety sensitive and commercial driver positions. Failure to participate in the required drug screening test or a confirmed positive result based upon a test sample obtained from the candidate will make the conditional offer of employment null and void. The candidate is disqualified from designated positions for a period of one year from the effective date of disqualification action. The Wichita State University Office of Human Resources (OHR) schedules appointments for testing with the designated testing site. The State of Kansas Office of Personnel Services Substance Abuse Testing program will notify the WSU Office of Human Resources of the final results. The candidate's effective date of employment will be determined after receiving final results.
