In a nutshell, no, the TL would not be fired.So if the tl did see someone acting drunk and smelling like alcohol and didn’t tell hr...would that be something the team lead can get fired for? Since they witness it and hr later found out the team lead knew about team member being drunk?
I'll add that you end up smack in the middle of legal gray areas. Addiction is an ADA illness, the person might not even be drunk or high and might have a physical illness, OSHA, and discrimination circle in a perfect storm. So firing someone over not addressing a complex legal issue would complicate it even more.T
thank you for your response!
Diabetes, if not well controlled, can result in your breath smelling like you've been drinking.the person might not even be drunk or high and might have a physical illness
This is great that they were able to help. In some states, addiction is treated as a disability and when employers know about addiction, they can't necessarily take disciplinary action, unless it impacts the job.One of our TM was on oxy and messed up all the time at work. Target got him help. This was last year and he is still there and straight.
