I work in HR – here’s everything your boss might do if you come into work drunk after watching World Cup games

FANS have turned out by the thousands to see the Three Lions storm through the World Cup – but a HR leader has issued a stark warning.

Drinks will be flowing in pubs across the country, but when an employee comes to work drunk after a World Cup game, things could get complicated.

Jenny posts advice on HR issues in the workplace on her Tik Tok account.

Her latest video warns workers who come to work drunk.

Jenny said: “Rules shouldn’t be changed just because of the World Cup.”

“Review your alcohol consumption policies. An employee who comes to work drunk should be sent home.”

Viewers of the video were quick to joke about the warning.

One user said: “Policies will be reviewed when England bring them home.”

A second commenter said: “Totally disagree. The rules should change because of the World Cup.”

Although labor laws do not specifically prohibit showing up to work intoxicated, many companies have written policies prohibiting it.

Law firm The Peninsula Group Limited explains more about drinking before and during work on their website.

When a company policy states that intoxication is “misconduct” or “gross misconduct,” it means an employee is subject to disciplinary action.

“Other companies may be more relaxed, allowing moderate drinking during lunch breaks or with customers, as long as it doesn’t interfere with their ability to work.”

Jenny advises employers to address this issue as they would any other time of year.
