Employers should help alcoholics - Gillette News Record: Opinion

Employers should help alcoholics

Posted: Monday, May 6, 2013 12:00 am | Updated: 11:24 am, Tue Nov 5, 2013.

I am a recovering alcoholic who was recently terminated from my job at a mine due to my sickness getting in the way.

This is not a plea for reemployment but a plea to not just coal mines, but all Campbell County employers to educate yourselves about this terrible disease. I know now after counseling that if my employer would have had a help program in place to help me better understand my sickness, I would most likely still be employed there.
