We're implementing a drug and alcohol policy for our factory and warehouse employees. Once you suspect alcohol or drug use by an employee, we have the union's approval to send the employee to an approved facility for testing. Anyone have experience with implementing this?
Implementing a drug and alcohol policy
The facility you work with should help you implement it. We have forms pre-printed with our name/contract ID # that we can hand the employee at any time. Our policy states we can issue random drug testing at any time and if there is an accident a mandatory DT will be performed. I can send you the language we have in our policy manual if you would like.
Do you just send them to the facility? Escort them? Have someone drive them?
We have a company van and have someone drive them to and from the facility. If the van is not available than we pay for a taxi to and from. We do not let an employee (even a manager) drive themselves to/from the clinic. (two miles away)
