602.06000 – Change in Past Practice
A “zero tolerance” drug testing policy not mandated by federal law that required dismissal of bus drivers if they refused to submit to an alcohol or drug test constituted a change in past policy and practice which required progressive discipline. The “safety” exception to progressive discipline was not applicable to the employee’s refusal to disrobe during a drug test, as it did not threaten or expose to danger students, employees or District property.
