Loss of License, Registration, or Certificate
Since the Regent institutions have numerous
job classifications and positions that require employees to be licensed to practice their
professions or to drive Regent and/or state vehicles, this policy addressing the loss of
license, registration or certificate was developed. The
policy complies with Iowa Code §§ 321J (Operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated) and
252J (Child Support Sanctions).
whose job classification or position REQUIRES the possession and maintenance of a
license, permit, certificate, registration, or approval in order to perform the essential
functions of that positions assigned duties and who subsequently have that license,
permit, certificate, registration, or approval revoked, rescinded, suspended, or renewal
denied may be, after the exhaustion of all administrative contested case proceedings
before the licensing agency, terminated from employment for failure to maintain the
necessary qualifications required for that position.
Requires the possession and maintenance of means as stated in the
minimum qualifications or selective certification provisions for the job class or
positions. NOTE: This definition requires that the specific
license, permit, certificate, registration or approval cited must be documented in the
class description and/or position description questionnaire.
whose job classification or position occasionally require the employee to use a
vehicle for the conduct of Regent institution business, and who subsequently have their
driving privileges suspended, revoked, or barred either for violations of statutes
relating to Operating While Intoxicated, habitual violations, or failure to satisfy court
ordered child support payments shall, for the period of suspension, revocation, or bar,
not operate any Regent institution or state vehicles.
If the job requires the employee to travel, employees whose driving privileges are
restricted by a temporary driving permit that requires the installation of an ignition
interlock device will either use a personal vehicle or arrange alternate transportation. An ignition interlock device may NOT be installed
on any vehicle owned by Regent institutions or the state.
