The ADA, Addiction And Alcoholism: What An Employer Needs To Know
|Date / Time:
One of the most misunderstood and confounding problems impacting businesses today is managing drug and alcohol abuse within its workforce.
The enactment of the Americans with Disabilities Act made the problem even more difficult for employers to manage. Moreover, recent amendments to the ADA bring the ADA's protections to more people.
This webinar will explain how the amendments impact management of those with addictions. How should an employer handle the situation when an employee comes forward with a drug or alcohol problem? What about when an employee appears to be intoxicated while at work? What protections are afforded an employee in such situations? How can an employer limit its exposure to employment claims from those in its workforce who are abusing drugs or alcohol?
This course is designed to educate legal and HR professionals in addressing those situations within the boundaries of the ADA, and it will also help you know when the ADA is in play and when it is not. Not only will this webinar cover the law, but it will also provide practical strategies for working within the law, both in the context of recommended policies and through case studies, to reduce an employer's exposure to ADA claims.

|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.
