It provides answers to several  of the most common questions managers struggle with, including:

·         Do you need to be absolutely sure a person is using drugs or alcohol before you confront them about his or her behavior?

·         When addressing performance issues with someone you suspect is using drugs or alcohol on the job, do you communicate these suspicions directly to the individual?

·         If you confront the employee and they start crying or get angry, what do you do?

·         As a manager, is it my job to diagnose and counsel an employee with a suspected substance abuse problem?

·         Can we just spring a drug test on an employee we suspect has a substance abuse problem?
