New Personnel Policy drug and Alcohol Policy to be Implemented in 2019
Through the work of a Personnel Policy Committee that was established, the policies have been updated and are a professional working document. The policies will be presented to the Legislature for final approval and will become effective in January 2019.
Due to conflict and uncertainty in previous administration regarding the Tribes drug testing policy, tribal employees have not been subject to drug testing for at least 5 years now. Under this administration, a new Drug and Alcohol policy has been written. Employees will receive training on the policies over the next 3 months and employees will begin to adhere to random drug testing starting in January of 2019.
The Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes are an Equal Employment Opportunity Employer. Other than Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribal members/Indian Preference, selection for a position will be made without regard to race, sex, color, age, marital status, national origin, or any other non-merit factor.
