Opioid and Drug Abuse Within the Workplace

Learn how to be as proactive as possible during the up rise of the opioid epidemic within the workplace.

Your employees are more likely to die from an opioid overdose than a car crash. These numbers only account for opioid use and do not include the use of other drugs. It is simply unrealistic to believe your workforce is exempt from the current crisis. While a certain level of empathy may be appropriate, employers that are too lenient and forgiving learn quickly (and often painfully) that no good deed goes unpunished. This topic will discuss the ways opioids can impact employers, as well as proactive, lawful ways employers can approach the opioid crisis in the workforce.
