Abstract
Employee alcoholism is discussed with regard to the crucial role of management and labor in employee alcoholism programs. Topics include the scope of the problem, (including the difficulty of early detection, society's approbation, the powerful nature of the addiction and guilt feelings of the victim), the importance of motivation, historical background of employee alcoholism programs and the new methodology. The latter is based on the employee's desire to hold his job with management offering him a choice between accepting a referral for professional help or accepting normal disciplinary consequences of unsatisfactory job performance.
