Drug-Free Workplace

NREL complies with federal law prohibiting the possession and use of illegal drugs and is committed to a drug-free workplace. Colorado Amendment 64 does not change NREL's policy on marijuana. Marijuana is considered a controlled substance under federal law and its possession and use are not permitted by NREL. To maintain a drug-free workplace, NREL requires pre-employment drug testing as a condition of employment. If you have any questions, please contact your recruiter.


NREL validates right to work using E-Verify. NREL will provide the Social Security Administration and, if necessary, the Department of Homeland Security, with information from each new employee's I-9 Form to confirm work authorization.
