    I'd probably be a support to my friend by being there for her if she needs someone to listen, but I'd stay out of it personally. The business itself should have drug & alcohol policies in place that she can refer to. If anyone is suspected of being under the influence at work then we'd have "random" tests done that day and follow protocol. Is the manager the owner?

    Manager isn't owner.

    It's a group of shops there is 5 I think all over town And my friend asked to be
    Transferred they denied her request.

    The boss has been like this for over a year. I think possibly her relationship isn't that good etc. been together 5-6 years. She's had to go bank rupt etc she's basically having a break down etc. but all could of been avoided but didn't listen to advice given. We have tried helping manager for years.

    I goto uni with friend (well did until I moved.

    I will be surprised if there hasn't been complaints made by customers. !! I think the only thing you can do is to keep making reports to the management. Send in written reports, or at least email with your details, so they can contact you or the friend. It is very serious and the person needs help with the problem. Marie.

    Your friend should put everything in writing to the owners. Be specific about the managers actions (dates etc). Mention Workplace health and safety if employees is at risk. Perhaps include a quite from the appropriate legislation. Be professional, non-emotional, brief and factual.

    It's a bold owner that ignores a warning they are in breach of workplace health and safety regulations.

    Thanks I will tell her to do that I said safe work sa might come drug test etc I wasn't 100% though.

    Customers have complained to other workers but owners haven't cared. As manager is owed unpaid wages so I don't think they want to get rid of her I did feel sorry for her up until nothing changed etc

    Eg she owned a house with brother and she went bank rupt as she couldn't afford his half of payments. (He just left and moved out with a gf). We said she should get lawyer). Her mum told her it would offend family. So I get she feels sad by that etc but screw stuffing your family/life up over your own sibling and it's gone down from there

    I feel for her ESP with the house situation it has screwed her life and financial future up. Bugger if it would offend the family seems like the parents batted for their son and not their daughter. I would of rented rooms out to people to stay afloat but it's to late for her now. Poor chick
