One of my colleagues has asked me to sit in on a disciplinary hearing as his support person.
This guy is about 60 with 15 years service.
He has rung in very late for his shift on maybe 3 times in the last year.(this time he's claiming he passed out due to heat in his tiny windowless (skylight only) social security appartment. It is a heat box.
I suspect this is alcohol related as do the bosses.
This guy is a good employee in many ways, not so good when it comes to reliability but gold when it comes to coping with our homeless or drug affected clients.
He also has a few other medical conditions.
I've told him I'll try and get a Union rep to support him as I'm his OHS rep and not qualified in HR stuff. but will do it if there's no one else.
Just thinking..what are managements options..Last warning ..offer rehab?
Find out what your boss wants you to do and do that.
