If you believe an FFD evaluation is warranted (whether for safety reasons, suspicions of drug or alcohol abuse or if an employee appears to be suffering physical or mental distress), call PG&E’s FFD PM at 510-684-5625 for an FFD consultation. From there, the FFD PM will determine if a fitness for duty evaluation is necessary or suggest other options and resources. If an evaluation is necessary, you will need to consult with your local Labor Relations Specialist (LRS) for Union-represented employees or Human Resources Business Partner (HRBP) for management and administrative and technical (A&T) employees.
Understand the role of a shop steward in the fitness for duty process, and that your employee may elect to waive their right to a shop steward. See the Waiver of Assistance of Shop Steward form.
When there are performance, attendance or conduct issues that do not require an FFD evaluation, contact your local Labor Relations Specialist (LRS) for Union-represented employees, or your Human Resources Business Partner (HRBP) for management and A&T for assistance.
PG&E’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provides confidential counseling, support, referrals, and more to help an employee manage life’s demands at work and at home. Learn more about EAP here.
