(a) The Employee must notify Employer as soon as possible.

(b) Employer may assign the Employee to other duties until such time as Employer is satisfied that the Employee's lawful drug use is no longer expected to interfere with the Employee's ability to safely and professionally perform his or her duties for Employer or to negatively impact on Employer.
