Tips for Telling a Boss about Drug Addiction
– Review the company policy for sick leave and recovery. Understanding the policy and procedure set up by the company will help you with talking to your boss.
– Make an appointment for the discussion. You want to be alone and not rushed. Scheduling the meeting will help provide you with both of those.
– Better sooner than later. Schedule the talk as soon as you know there is a need. You will provide your employer with time to make any arrangements for a substitute and you may also find that your company offers other assistance when it comes to recovery.
Holding a job should not get in the way of starting down the road to recovery. Following a few simple tips can help you with telling a boss about drug addiction.
