Preventing Workplace Substance Misuse: A Transformational Approach


Gain a better understanding of how to identify and prevent substance use in the workplace.

Employee substance abuse can cause safety and productivity issues. When combined with differing - and often conflicting - guidance provided by federal, state, and local authorities, the headache for a responsible employer can grow even larger. This topic will provide you with the tools and background to avoid these pitfalls while addressing employee substance abuse and/or implementing a drug-free workplace policy. The material also explores practical examples and tips to assist in identifying issues before they cloud a disciplinary decision or subject the employer to potential liability as well as a review of relevant state and federal legal guidance in the ever-evolving area of medical and recreational marijuana.
