Drugs in the Workplace…Prescribed or Not

Thursday, February 21st

10:00-11:00am

Webinar

 

As the laws on medical marijuana use evolve and prescription drug abuse grows, employers are facing a number of challenges with how to handle compliance with regard to drugs in the workplace. Companies have traditionally accepted a zero-tolerance drug-free workplace policy as the safest and most obvious solution. However, with state laws allowing patients to legally access marijuana for medicinal purposes and the increasing abuse of opioids, this is a growing area of concern and uncertainty for human resources departments.

Please join us as we discuss how marijuana use and substance abuse is treated by the ADA and get best tips on how your managers can best manage these employees and still be legally compliant.
