I Think My Employee Has A Drug Problem

In this episode’s Question of the Day, we focus on what to do when you Think Your Employee Has a Drug Problem.

The federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration estimated that more than 68% of people with a drug or alcohol abuse problem are employed full or part time.  That means, the likelihood you will, at some point, have to deal with an employee who’s facing a drug or alcohol abuse issue is fairly high.  But what should, and can, you do when you suspect someone on your team is abusing drugs or alcohol.

In this week’s episode, I’ll walk you through the steps you need to think about.
