Are you at-risk if you hand out over-the-counter drugs to employees? — Business Management Daily: Free Reports on Human Resources, Employment Law, Office Management, Office Communication, Office Technology and Small Business Tax Business Management Daily
Question: “Is it OK to keep medicine on-hand to give employees as needed
(e.g.,Advil, Tylenol, Excedrin, Motrin)? I keep these meds on my desk
(as do a lot of other assistants at my company) and give them to anyone
who needs them. It’s faster than employees walking to our on-site
health center to request something for a headache. My husband’s company
has stopped keeping meds like this in its first-aid kits because of
liability reasons (in case someone takes something they are allergic
to). If we (assistants) continue to keep meds on-hand, do we need a
sign-out sheet before giving these meds to employees?” — Lisa
