Obligation to Notify University of Suspension or Revocation of Driver License


Scope: Who is Covered by this Policy?

Employees

Policy

Any Miami University employee who drives a University-owned or University-leased motor vehicle is required to have a valid state of Ohio or other state of residence driver’s license. Departments may implement programs to verify on a regular basis employees’ possession of a valid driver’s license.

A current employee who, as a condition of employment, must possess a valid driver’s license to perform his/her regularly assigned work duties is required to notify his/her supervisor immediately upon receipt of any notification that his/her driver’s license has been suspended, revoked, or has in any way been modified or subjected to restrictions not previously known to the supervisor. The supervisor must report this information to the employee’s personnel office (Department of Human Resources or Academic Personnel Services).

If a current employee’s driver’s license is suspended or revoked, expires, or is subject to modification or restriction which prevents the employee from performing any part of his/her regularly assigned work duties, that employee will not be permitted to operate a University motor vehicle on any public roadway until the license is fully reinstated, renewed, or additionally modified.

Until the employee’s driving privileges are restored, the employee’s department may reassign, when practicable, the employee to a job not requiring the operation of a University vehicle. In cases where reassignment is not practicable, the employee may be placed on a leave of absence or terminated.

Before the employee may resume operating a University motor vehicle, the employee must present the supervisor with a properly issued renewal license or with written confirmation from the state of Ohio or state of residence verifying license reinstatement or conferring privileges to drive while at work.  The supervisor must report this information to the employee’s personnel office (Department of Human Resources or Academic Personnel Services).

Failure to comply with this policy may result in disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment.
