All applicants conditionally selected for employment may be subject to a physical examination consisting of the following: complete physical examination, functional test and drug screen including marijuana detection.
Harris County Emergency Corps Company and its affiliates (the “Company”) has a policy of maintaining a safe and healthy work environment for all its employees. This is to notify all applicants as potential Company employees that use or possession of illegal or unauthorized drugs, alcoholic beverages, firearms or weapons is not permitted in or on any of the Company’s Offices, vehicles, or other installations, and that the possession, use and/or distribution of any such items by any person in Company’s Offices, vehicles, or other installations owned or operated by the Company poses a serious threat to the safety of Company personnel and the Company’s operations.
As a means of enforcing this policy, the Company or the Company’s customers reserve the right to conduct searches or inspections (including complete medical examination, drug screen and marijuana detection) of employees, persons, personal effects and lockers for the purposes of determining if any employees have used, are using or are in possession of any such illegal or unauthorized items. Such searches may be made from time to time by authorized Company representatives without prior warning. The searches may be made of anyone entering or departing from any Company’s Offices, vehicles, or other installations (whether Company-owned or leased).
Refusal to submit to a search, inspection or examination of one’s person or property by any Company employee, or any Company employee found to have used, be using or be in the possession of any such illegal or unauthorized items will be cause for disciplinary action up to and including immediate discharge.
Any illegal items found as a result of searches by the Company will be taken into the custody of the Company and may be turned over to the proper law enforcement authorities.
