Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about being sent home for smell of alcohol.:
My boss sent me back home accused of smelling of alcohol and I have lost the income for that day. Can I claim my money although even though I did not work that day as I think he did not follow the company procedure and policy to deal with drunk or smelling with alcohol?
Signed, Get It Back
Dear Get It Back:
Possibly, you can challenge the procedure was not followed when you were accused you of smelling of alcohol and sent home. Possibly you can get paid even though you didn’t work. You can check with the company’s policy book to determine, if in fact, that there are rules that were was not followed.
