Abstract

This paper reports the results of a survey of 161 Scottish organizations which asked questions in four areas: attitudes of employers toward alcoholism, present disciplinary practice on alcohol-related behaviours, structural features of firms relevant to their policy in discipline in this matter, and employers' views on support available in implementing a work-based alcohol-recovery programme. Results indicated (a) favourable attitudes toward the treatment of alcoholism generally but some doubt as to the practicalities of work-based programmes, (b) a proportion of firms (25.5%) with some form of alcoholism policy, (c) written programmes being associated with firms employing a more skilled workforce and possessing a large personnel department, (d) a willingness by employers to use external voluntary agencies in a recovery programme.
