The Employer and the Union will encourage and support employees' participation in appropriate programs including the UW Care Link services, through which employees may seek confidential assistance in the resolution of chemical dependency or other problems which may impact job performance. No employee's job security will be placed in jeopardy as a result of seeking and following through with corrective treatment, counseling or advice providing that the employee's job performance meets supervisory expectations.

Employees who undergo voluntary counseling or treatment, and who continue to work, must meet all established standards of conduct and job performance including these Guidelines. While the mere voluntary request for assistance with an alcohol or drug abuse problem will not result in any constructive counseling, such requests will not prevent disciplinary action for violation of Sodexo’s Drug and Alcohol Use Policy and will not prevent termination for a positive result.

When a permanent employee’s work performance is adversely affected by behavioral health problems (e.g., drug, alcohol dependency and emotional problems) that may be correctable through treatment or counseling, the employee may request help in identifying local community resources which can provide professional assistance.
