Most Common Pitfalls In Workplace Substance Abuse Policies

Format: Webinar

Description:

Learn how to create and implement a substance abuse policy that is lawful, effective and defensible in litigation. Understand clearly prohibited conduct with regard to drugs and alcohol; while making appropriate exceptions for alcohol use and prescription drug use that do not compromise workplace safety.

Additionally, you will learn to articulate appropriate disciplinary consequences for policy violations while distinguishing those situations from voluntary disclosures of substance abuse, which raise legal issues under the Americans with Disabilities Act and related laws.

We will discuss potential pitfalls for employers with unionized workforces when implementing a substance abuse policy, as well as additional requirements applicable to federal and state contractors.

Finally, this webinar will address educating your workforce with regard to the dangers of prescription painkillers and their connection to heroin abuse, and will teach employers how to comply with the contradictory laws addressing marijuana use by 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.

The live 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.
