Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello my name is***** am a solicitor and I am happy to help you today.
Are they employed via an agency?
Ok there is no issue at all from you banning staff from consuming alcohol consumption before shifts or at lunch time. It is clearly a health and safety risk. You can let them go if they fail to comply with this rule.
Is there anything further you would like to know?
Most likely you would be, you will need to clarify that with your insurers. It would be preferable to have a zero tolerance of alcohol on site because if you knowingly allow it you are in breach of health and safety laws and potentially could face criminal liability if someone was hurt.
If you have any further questions then please do ask. If I have answered your question please take the time to rate my answer, thank you and all the best.
