Employers cannot ignore substance abuse issues in the workplace. Here are the facts: According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, approximately 10% of all full time employees have had a substance abuse disorder incident in the past year, and almost 9% have used illegal drugs or have heavily abused alcohol in the past month.
SACS Consulting & Investigative Services, Inc. can help your organization address employee substance abuse by creating HR Policies for a Drug Free Workplace. We will help you determine your overall approach to the situation, such as a “zero-tolerance” policy or allow for a rehabilitation opportunity after the first positive test.
Through a clearly stated HR Policy for a Drug Free Workplace, your organizational stance will be clearly stated so legal repercussions can be avoided. Contact us to speak with one of our HR Policies specialists today!
