    What legal actions should be taken if an employee comes drunk in office?

    There are certain norms in office premises which include behaving properly while entering and working in office premises. But it happened twice that one of my employees came in drunken condition while working. This is very annoying. Are there some legal actions taken?

    Hi buddy

    You should certainly take strict action against such employees who have no manners at all and think that they can get away with anything. They should certainly be taught a good lesson so that they dont repeat such a thing in future and thus their future willl also be saved. As he has already done this two times he should be made to learn the proper rules and regulations of the company and how to obey them.

    Instead of taking some legal action against him I think first you should call him to your office and reprimand him for behaving in such a way. Tell him that he has came in a drunken condition twice and this is certainly not done at his workplace. This is against the rules of the company and if the next time he is caught doing the same , he will be severely punished and may even lose his job. Also tell him that by doing this he is creating a bad influence on others.

    I hope with your lecture, he realises his mistake and does not repeat the same for the fear of losing his job. But if he does so, the best thing for you would be to terminate his services temporarily or permanently as you wish , so that he learns his lesson.

    Good luck and God bless
