  • Duration: 60 Min
Cannabis, or marijuana, is illegal under federal law. However, at least 30 states and the District of Columbia have legalized marijuana for medicinal use and nine states, soon to be more, have legalized it for recreational use. This conflict presents a unique challenge to employers. At the same time, the illegal use of legal prescription drugs has reached, in the words of the Center for Disease Control, epidemic status. What do employers need to know about this new drug environment at work? What policies and procedures need to be addressed? How do employers comply with the new regulations? What about my pre-employment drug testing program? These questions and others will be answered by this webinar.

Why Should You Attend:

Drug use and abuse has been an ongoing topic for discussion by employers for decades. In fact, pre-employment drug testing is conducted by more than 80% of US employers. In the past few years, however, changes in the social and legal environment, particularly at the state level, have brought new attention to the concerns over drug use. In addition, the misuse or prescription drugs, in particular opioids, have raised new concerns for employers over safety and security. What do employers need to know about the current environment and what can they do to protect their employees and the firm form problems related to drug use and abuse. Employees who abuse drugs, including illegal drugs, prescription drugs and over-the-counter drugs, either on their own time or at work, pose a significant and wide-ranging problem for employers, managers and co-workers. These problems can include diminished job performance, lower productivity, absenteeism, tardiness, turnover and increased medial and workers’ compensation bills. Employees who abuse drugs can also make the workplace more dangerous and can expose employers to increased risk of legal liability.
