Employers cannot ignore substance abuse issues in the workplace. 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. Almost 9% have used illegal drugs or have heavily abused alcohol in the past month.
We can help your organization address employee substance abuse by creating an HR Policy for a Drug-Free Workplace. In addition, 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 to avoid legal repercussions. Contact us to speak with one of our HR Policies specialists today!
