Hey guys, this is a request to anyone who manages people in their professional lives... I will preface this by saying that my manager has just haded in her 4 weeks notice, and I am still in my probationary period at work (meaning I could be let go or be made surplus to requirements at anytime from now until the 30th of the month without any reason or repercussion on my employers side). I am hiding the fact that I am a recovering drug addict from my employer, and seeing as I only have 9 months of my 12 month contract left, I am not sure I should be fully open with my employer... I am honest, if someone asked me directly I would tell them that I was addicted to synthetic cannabinoids and am still on the path of recovery. All I want to do is come clean to my soon to be ex-manager as I feel that by not telling her I would be disrespecting not only her, but the hospice in which I have gained employment. However, I know that if I were to approach it the wrong way, it may get passed on (not that I do not trust her (it would be her obligation)) and I could lose my job as a result. All I am asking is input of the best strategy for sharing this information from those who have current or previous managerial experience. I know that if I were to approach it it the right way, alot of things would be put into perspective for her and also I may gain her respect. All the best and I sincerely hope that your light in the end of the tunnel isn't a train, like mine was... Pace yourselve and know that if you give a little, you gain alot!
