From time to time we feel that our employee have abused alcoholic beverages. We had alcohol testers acquired and had suspected guys blown these devices. Some passed with no sign of alcohol in blood, some showed signs in blood and two guys hade declined the alcohol tester. Is it enough to terminate immediately the employment contract?
It´s clear that alcohol at work site could not be tolerated. The existence of alcohol in blood during work hours has no scope of kindness. It gets quite complicated to make suspected person cooperate. The organizations have got good equipment in form of alcohol testers. The problem is about court and their application. Let´s focus on occurence which happened at your organization and at other employers.
Of course, those alcohol testers are the only instrument to use by organization. The problem is that legislation does not consider the alcohol tester as transparent enough. In other words, I wouldn´t dare to lay off a person showing sign of alcohol abuse only right after alcohol tester outcome. If you eventualy make the person blow do have the witness with who confirms the outcome (date, alcohol level, name of employee). Second step to advise is to drive the person to hospital where he had blood sample taken. Having medical report of alcohol in his blood there´s no obstacle in firing him.
The court do not like confirm the employment contract termination without having medical report.
Often, we experience the employee´s refusal of submitting blood tests and even they do not blow alcohol testers. Such situation is not this bad as it looks like. You have to make written statement about his decline which leads to organization´s right for terminating the contract. On inviting the person be sure to have witness with.
