  • Alcohol and Drugs at work by: Employee Rescue £17.99

    This guide is your essential step-by-step guide to your employment rights regarding alcohol and drug dependence and what you can do if you are facing disciplinary action for using alcohol or drugs, or for having alcohol or drugs in your possession at work or outside work.

    Alcohol and Drugs at work

    Alcohol and drugs have an impact on your ability to work safely and correctly. Under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974, your employer has a duty to ensure that the working environment is free from the inappropriate use of substances and all employees are able to carry out their duties in a safe and efficient manner to protect the safety of the workplace. This includes ensuring that no employees are working under the influence of alcohol and drugs. If you are found in possession of controlled substances in contravention of any of the laws listed below, it could still affect your job, if your employer decides that your actions outside of work are sufficiently serious to justify disciplinary action. This would also apply to being under the influence of alcohol outside of work.

    How Employers generally deal with this problem

    Employers have different approaches to alcohol and drug dependency. It can be approached as a disciplinary, health or performance issue or a combination. Remember that your employer is exactly that. Your employer. Not your counsellor or your friend. As such, your Employer will be more interested in your performance or behaviour, rather than the cause of it, and so it is your performance or behaviour that can get you fired from your job. Depending on the behaviour or performance issue that highlights the dependency problem, your Employer may choose to initially treat it as a health problem requiring a capability process, which can be escalated to a disciplinary if the problem persists. If it is a serious performance or behaviour issue, your Employer can go straight to the disciplinary process and you could lose your job.

  • How to survive a criminal charge, conviction or caution at work by: Employee Rescue £9.99

    You can be disciplined and ultimately lose your job for criminal offences occurring at work and outside work. This guide takes you through your rights and the options available to you in such a situation.

    Criminal charge, conviction, caution or police investigation

    If you have received a criminal charge, conviction, been cautioned or are the subject of a police investigation at work, then this is the guide for you. ACAS says that just because you are charged with or convicted of a criminal offence, received a caution or are the subject of a police investigation, is not enough in itself for disciplinary action to be taken against you. Your Employer needs to consider the impact of the charge or conviction on your ability to do the job, and whether the charge or conviction impacts on your work relationships and/or customers.

    If the outcome of your Employers investigation shows that some disciplinary action is necessary, your employer does not have to await the outcome of prosecution before starting the disciplinary procedure. The police should not be asked to conduct any investigation on behalf of your employer, neither should they be present at any meeting or disciplinary meeting.

    This e-book provides you with essential information and guidance on;

    • Your right to silence
    • How to deal with a charge or conviction
    • How to deal with custody or remand
    • Frustration of contract

    And much more.

  • How to win your Workplace Personal Injury claim by: Employee Rescue £17.99

    Personal Injury at Work is your essential step-by-step guide to making your personal injury claim for compensation of up to £25,000.00 to cover losses you have suffered as a result of an injury at work.

    Personal Injury

    If you are unfortunate enough to be injured in an accident at work, you may be able to make a Personal Injury claim for compensation. Accidents do happen in any job and in any situation. They are not limited to factories and building sites; every workplace has its own dangers. Your employer has a duty to protect you from injury at work and tell you about any health and safety issues that affect you. Your employer also has a legal obligation to report certain accidents and incidents and to pay you sick pay.

    If you are considering suing your employer, remember that the aim of work accident compensation is to put you in the position you would be in had the accident not occurred. By law, your employer must be insured against injury to employees. Your employer should place a certificate showing the name of its insurance company where it can be seen at work. You can also ask your employer to give you the details if you need them. You will be entitled to Statutory Sick Pay at the very least. Your right to contractual sick pay should be in your employment contract or your terms and conditions of employment.  The book covers what you need to know, taking you quickly and simply through essential information on;

    • Your legal rights
    • Remedies
    • How to get your compensation
    • Templates and tactics
    • Current legal information
