Additional Information

You believe an employee is abusing alcohol or drugs.  If you have proof, or if the employee could endanger others, you report it to upper management or human resources immediately and take appropriate action.  But if you’re dealing with suspected abuse, you should proceed carefully.

Trainer Comments: When working with employees, it is important to always treat them with respect and care. This is as important to their success as it is to yours. A job well done is as important to people today as it ever was, and part of your job as manager is to help your employees achieve that goal. In many cases, when employees don’t complete their work appropriately, it is because they do not clearly understand what’s expected of them. They have not received the necessary training or instruction to do their jobs correctly.
