Alcohol and drug abuse is a major contributor to workplace injuries, disability, and thousands of lost work hours and productivity. This policy serves to ensure that our network is free of alcohol abuse and other illegal drugs. This company will not tolerate the use of alcohol and drug abuse and we take the matter seriously in the interest of the protection of our drivers, users, and the public at large.
The company absolutely prohibits the use of drugs (non-prescription) and alcohol while the KTNEX driver is activated or online. The company also discourages the use of illegal alcohol even when the driver app is offline. The use, sale, or possession of alcohol and illegal drugs while performing KTNEX duties will result in disciplinary action, suspension, or deactivation from the network. The company will not compromise on public safety. The company may also involve legal authorities in your jurisdiction.
The company requires that all drivers do their service in appropriate mental and physical conditions. It is the company’s intent and obligation to provide a drug-free, healthful, and safe work environment. KTNEX reserves the right to demand a drug or alcohol test of any driver based upon reasonable suspicion. Reasonable suspicion includes, but is not limited to, physical evidence of use, involvement in an accident, or substantial unsafe driving.
Failure to take the test may lead to discipline and suspension including possible termination or deactivation.
The company also cautions against the use of prescribed or over-the-counter medication which can affect workplace performance. You may be suspended or terminated if the company concludes that you cannot do your duties safely or properly because of using over-the-counter or prescribed medication. Please inform KTNEX by email listed on the website prior to working under the influence of prescribed or over-the-counter medication use that may affect your performance.
All KTNEX contracted drivers must report any conviction under a criminal drug statute for violations on duty or off duty or off the company premises while performing the company duties. A report of a conviction must be made within 30 (thirty) days after the conviction.
If you have a drug or alcohol problem, please seek medical help!
