Workplace Drug Abuse and AIDS: A Guide to Human Resource Management Policy and Practice

Synopsis

This guidebook provides an overview, interpretation, and analysis of the related issues of substance abuse and AIDS as they relate to the human resource professional and the management of the workplace.
