Alcohol and Drugs
Alcohol and drug problems are prevalent in society and are associated with a wide variety of costs for both employers and employees. These costs include ill-health sickness absence, reduced work performance and accidents. The consumption of alcohol and drugs has implications for health and safety at work since these substances impair co-ordination, judgement and decision making; as such this is a policy matter.
An annual leave policy makes it clear what staff are and aren’t entitled to. It also outlines how holiday will be granted and any periods of business where holiday will be refused, for example, if one of your busiest periods is the run-up to Christmas.
Having it written down avoids disputes down the line for both you and staff over who is entitled to what and when.
