Employee comes forward

Health Challenges

Direct your employee to a Corporate Health Consultant

Corporate Health Consultant can help the employee work through their treatment options. They can also arrange a test for fitness to work. The Corporate Health Consultant can make a referral to a substance use professional who can diagnose a substance dependency if it exists. If a substance dependency is medically diagnosed, the substance use professional will make treatment recommendations.

Maintain confidentiality

As a supervisor, remember if an employee comes forward with a health concern, including one related to substance use, you must maintain your employee’s privacy. Do not tell co-workers the reason for absences.
