|This Month's Topic|
Each month, a different human resources expert will add tools to the Toolkit by posting advice on a particular subject area and answering your questions in that area.
I have an employee who I believe may be coming to work in an impaired state (drugs). How can I arrange to have this employee tested?
You should contact Linda Maxwell-Evans or Sonya Dixon in Human Resources immediately when this type situation is observed...
If the employee is believed to be under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, he or she will be required to undergo a drug and/or alcohol test. The employee will immediately be removed from his or her position, and arrangements made for the employee to be taken to a testing facility. An employee awaiting results of a reasonable suspicion test will be placed on administrative leave with pay pending the results of the test.
