The Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 requires members of our College community to be informed of the potential health hazards of drug use and the possible penalties for those who violate laws governing the use of illicit drugs. Illicit drugs and alcohol may cause addiction, severe physical and emotional illness and death. Convictions under local, state and federal laws can result in fines, prison sentences or both. Information about drug counseling and rehabilitation is available from the College Health Office. As a condition of employment, study or contact with the College, all employees, students and visitors are prohibited from the illegal use, manufacture, possession or distribution of all controlled substances on the campus. Any violations of this policy will result in College disciplinary action up to and including discharge or expulsion, whichever is appropriate. In addition, violations of this policy may be reported to civil authorities. Criminal convictions will be reported to federal contracting agencies as required by state and federal statutes.
Information about drug counseling and rehabilitation is available on campus from the College Health Office and the Employee Assistance Program offers assistance to employees and their dependents with chemical dependence.
Employees of Corning Community College must notify the Director of Human Resources of any convictions for drug-related offenses occurring in the workplace no later than five calendar days after such conviction.
The Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989 requires that employees, students, and visitors of Corning Community College be informed that illicit drugs and alcohol may cause addiction, severe physical and emotional illness, and death. This Act also requires that employees, students, and visitors be informed that convictions under local, state and federal laws can result in fines, prison sentences, or both. Legal sanctions for the unlawful possession or distribution of alcohol are found primarily in state statutes.

Students who need help with drug and/or alcohol problems should contact the Vice President and Dean of Student Development, the College Nurse, or the Counseling Staff for assistance. All requests for assistance are confidential.
