Drug & Alcohol Policy
The use of illegal drugs or alcohol in the workplace may lead to disciplinary action that could result in your dismissal without notice for gross misconduct. The following rules will apply:
a) If you are found to be consuming alcohol or deemed to be under the influence of alcohol in the workplace or in your working hours this may be treated as gross misconduct under the Company’s disciplinary procedure.
b) The taking of illegal drugs or being under the influence of illegal drugs by any employee in the workplace or during working hours may be treated as gross misconduct under the Company’s disciplinary procedure.
c) The possession of drugs for any reason other than medical is forbidden.
d) We may ask you to undertake a medical examination if we believe you have a problem in relation to drugs and/or alcohol to assess if this is affecting your ability to work. You may be suspended from work until the problem is resolved. The Company will decide whether to treat it as a disciplinary matter.
e) We will inform the police if we believe there has been an abuse of controlled drugs by an employee, for which criminal controls are appropriate, either in the workplace or when working on behalf of the Company when the employee is off the Company’s premises.
f) We reserve the right to test for either drugs or alcohol. Failure to co-operate, or if tests prove positive then this may be treated as gross misconduct under the Company disciplinary procedure.
