Human Resources Employees Suffering From Thesis

Excerpt from Thesis :



Companies are also implanting pre-employment drug screens that are designed to prevent the hiring of individuals who use illegal drugs or individuals whose use of illegal drugs indicates a potential for impaired or unsafe job performance. By not hiring these people from the beginning the company is preventing a lot of problems that are sure to occur in the future (Klingner and O'Neil, 1991).

No company is immune to drug abuse in the workplace. Recognition is essential, and rehabilitation of abusers is important to help errant employees. Prevention is achieved by having a policy that does not tolerate drug use or abuse. Considering the implementation of a drug testing program in order to prevent drug abuse in an office, will only help everyone involved (Workplace drug abuse: Your practice is not immune, 2008).

My recommendation is that this company implements a policy of a drug free workplace. This program should include pre-employment drug screenings along with random screen of current employees. There should be a well documented policy that is available to all employees, so that everyone knows the rules and the consequences. The company should continue to maintain the EAP program that is in place. It would also be recommended that the EAP provider do a drug and alcohol abuse campaign that would coincide with the roll out of the new drug policy in order to promote what services that they have to offer.
