Starke County Commissioners Approve Drug Policy

Starke County finally has a drug policy for certain County workers. The Drug Test Policy was voted into the Employee Handbook yesterday on a 3-0 vote of the Commissioners.

All new employees will have to take a pre-employment drug test. Those involved in accidents with County vehicles will have to take a post-accident test.

The employees will be in a “pool” with 10% random drug testing during the year.

Exempt will be elected officials, and Judicial employees. Highway workers are also exempt as they participate in DOT testing.
