New guidance: Acas publishes guidance on legal highs in the workplace
Tuesday 16th February 2016
Employers will welcome a new Acas guide on dealing with legal highs in the workplace.
'Legal highs' are generally substances which are not themselves illegal, but which mimic the effects of illegal drugs. They are often sold as products that are not obviously for human consumption, such as bath salts or incense.
This guide helps employers assess the potential impact of legal highs in the workplace, and gives advice on how to address the issue in alcohol and drug policies, and how to deal with employees under the influence of legal highs at work.
