FAR clause 52.223-6, Drug-Free Workplace, requires (1) Contractor employees to notify their employer of any criminal drug statute conviction for a violation occurring in the workplace; and (2) Government contractors, after receiving notice of such conviction, to notify the contracting officer. The clause is not applicable to commercial items, contracts at or below simplified acquisition threshold (unless awarded to an individual), and contracts performed outside the United States or by law enforcement agencies. The clause implements the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 (Pub. L. 100-690).
The information provided to the Government is used to determine contractor compliance with the statutory requirements to maintain a drug-free workplace.
