How much is alcohol related absence costing your business?

“Alcohol is estimated to cause 3 – 5% of all absences from work, this is around 8 -14 Million lost working days in the UK each year” (HSE, Don’t Mix It – A Guide for employers on alcohol at work)


Are you concerned about the level of alcohol use amongst your employee’s? Is this effecting the productivity of your business?

‘Employment protection law is sensitive to the underlying problems of alcohol dependence, employers are therefore required to treat dependence as a form of sickness, thereby giving an employee the opportunity to overcome the problem. Ultimately, an alcohol problem ought to be regarded as primarily a health issue rather than an immediate cause for discipline. This approach is supported by the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (ACAS), the ILO, and the Employment Appeals Tribunal’ (Institute of Alcohol Studies)
