Drug and Alcohol Issues

Drug and Alcohol Issues

The US Department of Labor states that more than 70% of illegal drug users were employed. This means that at some point almost all employers will have on staff an individual who uses drugs or alcohol during their time of employment. When drugs and alcohol become a serious issue for an employee their problems can affect the entire organization through safety, health and performance issues. These can include problems such as absenteeism and tardiness, injury to themselves or others, and lower productivity.

These two FREE guides take employers through the key issues they need to raise with employees who have drug and alcohol issues. Download your guide to dealing with employees with drug and alcohol issues and How to Help an Employee With a Substance Abuse Problem today!
