From Breaking Bad’s Jesse Pinkman, to Shakespeare’s Bardolph, entertainment throughout history has long featured disorderly characters and their drink and drug use.
Perhaps less spoken about, though, is how to handle these types of behaviors when they enter the workplace. Drug and alcohol abuse by employees is a serious issue, and one that can cause many problems for both the individual and the business itself. From emotional turmoil, to lost productivity, it can also result in injuries and an increase in health insurance claims.
By developing a clear policy and providing the right level of support, workplaces can prevent problems from ever escalating.
