Drugs and Alcohol: How To Keep Them Out of Your Workplace And Discipline Policy Violators
|Date / Time:
Every company, large or small, will inevitably have to deal with the issue of an employee with a drug or alcohol problem. It could be someone at any level of the company, from entry-level to CEO. Unfortunately, too many employers wait until the problem presents itself before establishing policies and procedures to effectively handle the situation.
And sometimes the lines are not clear-cut. What if you employ a recovering alcoholic who has a relapse? What if one of your employees uses marijuana to treat her glaucoma?
It's your obligation to keep drugs and alcohol out of your workplace, and to appropriately discipline employees who violate your policies. But you also need to be careful not to overstep the bounds imposed by the federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and other applicable laws.
Join us for an in-depth webinar and learn how to proactively create a workplace culture that discourages the use of illegal substances, and how to legally discipline workers who break your rules.
You and your colleagues will learn:
- Your rights and responsibilities under federal law
- Why "zero tolerance" is not always the best policy
- Whether you're ever required to accommodate the use of an illegal substance
- Why recovering alcoholics are sometimes protected under the ADA, and what's required of you in this situation
- How to balance progressive discipline with immediate termination and stay consistent
- Why you must have a substance abuse policy and what it should say
- How to monitor your workplace effectively while preserving employee privacy
- What you need to know about drug testing for job applicants and current employees

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
