If, for any reason during employment, an employee whose position requires that he/she drive on the job:
- Is unable to maintain the appropriate valid Utah driver's license required by the employee's position, or
- Becomes uninsurable under the City's insurance policy then in force without any additional premiums or costs being incurred by the City to insure that employee, or
- Is convicted of a serious traffic violation, such as reckless driving or a DUI
Then that employee must inform his or her Supervisor immediately. The Supervisor will then inform the Department Director and the Human Resources Division. The Human Resources Division, the Department Director, and a representative from the Legal Department will then review the situation, considering such things as the nature of the job and the expected duration of time the employee will be without a driver's license, and decide the appropriate action to be taken.
The Risk Management office may periodically review the driving records and status of employee driver licenses with the State Drivers License Division.
Penalties for Failure to Maintain Drivers License or for Failure to Notify
Failure to maintain a valid Utah driver's license or a commercial driver's license in a position that requires such, or failure to notify a supervisor of uninsurability, serious traffic violations or a change in status of an employee's driver's license when such license is a job requirement, may subject the employee to disciplinary action, including, but not limited to, termination.
