Drugs And Alcohol In The Workplace: Leveraging Employee Assistance Programs To Combat Substance Abuse And Limit Liability
|Date / Time:
Drug and alcohol use can undoubtedly affect a person’s daily life and, subsequently, affect his or her work progress and employer.
Whether the user is an employee or a family member of an employee, substance abuse can detrimentally affect workplace performance in a number of ways. Not only does the likeliness of injury or death rise with substance abuse, but drug and alcohol abuse inhibits productivity through tardiness, withdrawals, poor decision making, and decreased employee morale.
As an employer, the most effective way to combat employee substance abuse is to establish an employee assistance program (EAP). EAPs can help will all types of cases, and can confidentially provide counseling and referrals for employees affected by substance abuse problems.
Employers with successful EAPs saw improvements in employee morale and productivity and a decrease in absenteeism, accidents, turnover and theft.
Join us for an in-depth webinar on legal ways employers can combat substance abuse in the workplace and maintain a safe and healthful working environment.

|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.
