Employee policies follow including notification rules in the event of conviction on a drug charge, risks to job performance when drugs are used and university willingness to assist those who seek treatment and counseling. A section on legal sanctions covers the appropriate portions of the Code of Ordinances for the City of Bridgeport, State of Connecticut statutes, and federal statutes and laws. The health risks related to drug abuse are detailed next. Also mentioned is the impact of substance abuse on families.
