As an employer, you may be required to report an employee who you suspect or know has a problem with substance use disorder. If you question whether or not your employee may be addicted, using, diverting, or practicing impaired, we encourage you to familiarize yourself with these possible indicators of an impaired provider.
This list is not meant to diagnose but may serve as preliminary warning signs that there is a problem with substance use disorder or an impaired provider.
