Learn how to handle tricky situations when a manager must intervene with an employee and potentially initiate reasonable suspicion protocol.
The COVID-19 pandemic has put a spotlight on employee mental health and wellness: rates of depression and anxiety are at their highest point in recent memory, and many employees are turning to addictive behaviors in an attempt to cope. However, when employees use substances during work hours it puts themselves, other team members, and potentially customers in uncomfortable and sometimes risky situations. Understanding how best to handle these situations is critical to best-practice management, in terms of the health of both the team and the individual. Join Dr. Aaron Weiner, board-certified psychologist and addiction expert, in an exploration of the cause of addiction, current alcohol and drug use trends in the workplace, and how to best handle the tricky situations when a manager must intervene with an employee and potentially initiate a reasonable suspicion protocol.
