controlled substance is prohibited in the grantee's workplace, and specifying the actions that will be taken against employees for
violation of such prohibition;
(2) Establishing a drug-free awareness program to inform employees about:
(a) The dangers of drug abuse in the workplace;

(3) Making it a requirement that each employee to be engaged in the performance of the grant be given a copy of the statement
required by paragraph (1);
(4) Notifying the employee in the statement required by paragraph (1) that, as a condition of employment under the grant, the
employee will:
(a) Abide by the terms of the statement; and
(b) Notify the employer of any criminal drug statute conviction for a violation occurring in the workplace no later than five
days after such conviction;
(5) Notifying the agency within ten days after receiving notice under subparagraph (4) (b) from an employee or otherwise
receiving actual notice of such convictions;
(6) Taking one of the following actions, within 30 days of receiving notice under subparagraph (4) (b), with respect to any
employee who is so convicted;
(b) Requiring such employee to participate satisfactorily in a drug abuse assistance or rehabilitation program approved for
such purposes by a Federal, State, or local health, law enforcement, or other appropriate agency;
