What is Employment Liaison?

The responsibility of Employment Liaison Officers is to carry AA's message to employers within their local area. Employment specifically concerns any organisation employing or serving staff companies, trade unions and associations, government departments and/or related agencies.

AA for Employers

As an Employer coming into contact with alcoholism you will be well aware of its harmful effects on the individual concerned and other employees. This can also affect declining standards of work with lower output,absenteeism and health and safety risks.

Talks to Employers can be also arranged on request by contacting the AA General Service Office in York (01904 644026).

What is the best way to get AA help for a problem drinker?

By far the best way to get help is to give them the AA telephone number (0800 9177 650) or to call the number while the employee is with you and hand them the phone.The AA telephone helpline is manned by AA members with at least one year of sobriety who will offer to arrange for a member to contact them to take them to a local meeting.
