Impaired Employees

2. Common supervisor concerns

Impaired EmployeesWe do want to be helpful, we don't want to jump to conclusions

  • We worry that we will damage the work relationship if we mention our concerns.
  • We don't want to assume we know what the problem is — after all it could be any number of things.
  • What if we make it worse by talking with the employee — we are not trained to counsel.

Your concerns are valid

Support and information on how to talk to employees who may be impaired helps us break through those questions and concerns and proceed with confidence to handle these situations in a responsible and sensitive way
