Accused of Smelling Like Alcohol, But I Don’t Drin

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about a coworker smelling of alcohol:

Recently I was reported to my H.R. dept because another colleague assumed I smelled of alcohol. I don’t even drink.

Signed, Falsely Accused

Dear Falsely Accused:

By the time you get this response you have probably had a chance to show HR or others, that you were not drinking on the job, had not had so much to drink at home that you smelled of an alcoholic beverage, and could not have such things happen because you don’t drink alcohol.If HR thought you smelled of alcohol too, maybe there is a problem you need to check on.
