July HR Roundtable | Substance & Alcohol Abuse and the Workplace

According to the United States Department of Labor, full-time workers age 18-49 who reported current illicit drug use were more likely to state that they had:

  • Worked for three or more employers in the past year (32.1% versus 17.9%),
  • Taken an unexcused absence from work in the past month (12.1% versus 6.1%),
  • Voluntarily left an employer in the past year (25.8 % versus 13.6%),
  • Been fired by an employer in the past year (4.6% versus 1.4%).

Similar results were reported for employees who were heavy alcohol users.  Additionally, it has been reported that medical costs are 300% higher for drug and alcohol abusers who are five times for likely to file a Workers Compensation claim.
There is no doubt that the societal problems surrounding alcohol and substance abuse impacts the workplace.  Join us in July for our Human Resource Roundtable series where we'll explore the effect of the problem along with strategize effective solutions through a case study approach.
