Looking for practical and easy tools to address challenging alcohol and other drug situations? Tools that can support your alcohol and drug policy?

Working Partners® Protocol Packages provide operational procedures, resources and guidance designed to help your organization address common drug-free workplace program concerns and situations like addressing the use of prescription drugs in the workplace or handling alcohol use during company events.

Below is a list of currently available topics. Additional topics will become available as they are developed.

(Protocol packages are NOT INTENDED for organizations with Working Partners® Premium Policy, as your policy/program documents already contain the resources provided in these packages.)

Responding to Reasonable Suspicion in the Workplace

This protocol package will help your organization develop a system to ensure that situations involving reasonable suspicion are handled quickly, objectively and consistently.
