Substance Abuse and Alcohol Operating Procedure 424.04
Johnson County Community College
Series: 400 Personnel
Section: Employee Conduct and Performance

Cross Reference:  Substance Abuse and Alcohol Policy 424.03

Applicability: This Policy applies to all Johnson County Community College (“JCCC” or the “College”) employees.

Purpose: The purpose of this Policy is to set out the limited circumstances under which an employee may consume alcohol while on duty.


Employees are generally not permitted to consume alcohol while on duty. In limited circumstances, employees may be approved to consume alcohol in connection with College-sponsored activities that do not involve the direct supervision or oversight of JCCC students. Prior to the event where alcohol may be served or consumed, the employee must review the circumstances with the employee’s direct supervisor. The employee’s direct supervisor may consult with Human Resources regarding approval and parameters related to such approval.

If approved, employees must consume alcohol responsibly and in a manner that does not impair their ability to perform job duties or cause them to negatively represent the College. Employees should discuss specific expectations with their supervisor or Human Resources prior to consuming alcohol while representing the College. 

Suspected violations of College policy related to alcohol consumption or alcohol or substance abuse should be immediately reported to Human Resources for review and action. To support the College’s goal of an environment free from illegal drug use and alcohol abuse, employees may be subject to drug or alcohol testing upon reasonable suspicion and in accordance with applicable laws, regulations and internal procedures administered by Human Resources.
