*For further guidance on distinguishing "Spent" and "Unspent" criminal convictions, please refer to the guidance on the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. Certain types of employment and professions are exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and in details for all criminal convictions must be given. The information given will be treated in the strictest of confidence and only taken into account where, in the reasonable opinion of the client, the offence is relevant to the post to which you are applying. Failure to declare a conviction may require us to exclude you from our register or terminate an assignment if the offence is not declared but later comes to light. DBR Group also reserve the right to carry out an Internet search of all candidates that we may offer work to.
1. DBR Group believes that it is essential that all employees, workers and those who render services to the Company or at the Company’s premises or on behalf of the Company are in full command of themselves and of all of their faculties throughout the working day.
2. DBR Group requires you to present yourself for work on each occasion required under your contract in complete command of all your faculties i.e. without any dependence on alcohol or any other drugs of a non-medicinal nature and to maintain that state until the completion of your working hours under your contract. If during the course of your working day you have to take medicinal drugs on a regular basis, this fact should be known to your supervisor/manager confidentially.
3. In the event that you present yourself at work or during working hours you are in a condition where your direct supervisor/manager believes you to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs and you are not able to carry out your duties in a proper, fit and safe way you will not be allowed to commence work or continue work. Instead you will be suspended without pay and not allowed to return until such a time as you are in full control of your faculties.
4. DBR Group is obliged to investigate all the circumstances surrounding such behaviour prior to commencing the disciplinary procedure and this may, where necessary, include seeking medical advice as to your condition including requiring you to submit to a medical examination. DBR is obliged to investigate such matters in as much detail as possible and therefore expects you to comply with any requests that you submit to such examinations. You may appeal in accordance with the Company’s disciplinary procedure.
5. If the disciplinary procedure is evoked and you receive a disciplinary sanction short of dismissal or if you have a successful appeal DBR Group will recommend that you take advantage of counselling services to help control your problem and you will be required to act of any such recommendation. In the event that you need to be absent from work for a period of treatment for either alcohol or drug dependency a reasonable leave of absence will normally be granted to cover this on an unpaid basis.
6. If DBR Group suspects that you are in the possession of alcohol or drugs you will be required to consent to a search of your belongings. If you are found to be in possession of any alcohol or illegal substances you will be suspended from your duties pending further investigation. This matter will be dealt with under the Company’s disciplinary procedure and after due investigation it may result in dismissal for gross misconduct.
7. If DBR believes you are dealing, buying, selling or receiving drugs or alcohol you will suspended from your duties while an investigation is carried out. Where a criminal offence is suspected the Company shall inform the police.
8. All employees and workers are required to inform DBR or any appropriate person if they suspect any fellow worker may be acting in breach of this policy.
9. There may be circumstances where we would ask you to provide a test sample. This may be as part of an initiative to carry out random testing or otherwise. Any refusal to provide a test sample may lead to disciplinary action.
