How does the SAP process work?
First, a confirmed DOT violation for alcohol or illicit drugs exists. At that time, the employee must stand down from safety-sensitive duties, and cannot return to safety-sensitive duties until the employee completes the DOT-regulated return-to-duty process.
Second, Employee schedules appointment for a face-to-face initial SAP assessment. After the initial assessment, the SAP provides the employer/employee with the initial SAP report which includes a recommendation for drug or alcohol treatment or education.
Third, Employee completes recommendation(s).
Fourth, Employee attends a follow-up SAP evaluation. This is known as the return-to-duty appointment. SAP provides the employee/employer a copy of the follow- up SAP report detailing level of compliance with recommendations.
Fifth, Get a clean drug/alcohol, test. This is known as the Return-To-Duty-Test. This will be ordered by your present or future employer.
Sixth, Go back to work. You are now free to resume safety-sensitive duties per Department of Transportation.
