The National Institute of Drug Abuse puts the cost of substance abuse to our nation at $600 billion in terms of crime, lost work productivity and health care. In the workplace, drug and alcohol testing laws and regulations change constantly, while laws regulating individual drug use are evolving from state to state at an unprecedented rate. In this shifting landscape the stakes are high especially for employers with employees who may be impaired on the job but are complying with the law. To provide you with a briefing on this dynamic area of law we have enlisted the expertise of an employment law attorney with deep experience in substance abuse and testing regulations, a human resources professional who has held leadership positions at several national and global companies, and an attorney who combines his legal expertise with his education in pharmacology and his representation of pharmacists and health-care providers.

In this Webinar you will learn about:

  • U.S. Department of Transportation regulated testing requirements
  • State laws that impose obligations beyond those imposed by the DOT
  • Medical, recreational and synthetic marijuana
  • Employer polices on prescription drugs and self-disclosure of substance abuse problems/issues

Join speakers Charles Oxender with Miller Canfield; Albert Randall with Franklin & Prokopik, PC; and, Mark Walls with Safety National who will provide background and guidance around the topic of drug laws and the workplace.

This is a CLE-accredited* webinar scheduled Wednesday, August 13, at 2 p.m.
