TSC Policy Guideline on Alcohol and Drug Abuse

TSC Policy Guideline On Alcohol and Drug Abuse.

Alcohol, Drug/Substance Abuse (ADA) leads to workplace conflict, insubordination, and employee turnover.

Lack of control over these undesirable behaviors has the potential to have far-reaching repercussions on service delivery and may erode public faith in the organization.

This policy provides guidance for the prevention and management of substance abuse and alcohol abuse within the Commission.

Interventions to combat Alcohol and Drug Abuse

The Teachers Service Commission will view employees with alcohol and substance abuse disorders as psychopathic individuals with mental diseases.

TSC shall adopt the following alcohol and drug abuse prevention, management, and mitigating measures:

i. Prohibit alcohol and drug sales and usage in all workplaces.

ii. Ensure that employees with alcohol and drug issues are assisted in their recovery while getting all services and benefits specified in the employment contract.

iii. Provide sick leave to all ADA-challenged employees twice during their job term.

The Commission will provide any additional sought leave days on a case-by-case basis and in its discretion.

iv. Display and provide access to alcohol, drug, and substance abuse information, education, and communication (IEC) materials at all workplaces.

Support the creation of psycho-social support networks and urge employees with ADA-related concerns to participate in and benefit from after-care programs to prevent a recurrence.

v. Continuously perform alcohol and substance abuse awareness programs for employees in all jurisdictions

Programs for Drug and Alcohol Abuse

The Commission shall implement the following programs to reduce workplace alcohol and drug abuse.

i. Establish mental health support networks in all counties to assist employees with ADA-related difficulties.
