Description:

The growing use of opioids and marijuana results in unique challenges for both safety and HR managers, addiction and its associated side effects, the appropriateness of providing reasonable accommodations, and the duty to maintain a drug-free workplace.

Although marijuana remains an illegal controlled substance under federal law, many states have de-criminalized recreational usage, and medical marijuana usage is also permitted in some states. Employers therefore have questions about if and when they can screen-out applicants based on positive drug test results or how they can conduct legal post-accident drug testing.

Employers are also wondering where drug-free workplace policies and drug testing protocols should be updated to reflect the legality of recreational marijuana use or transfer in the workplace, and whether reporting to work under the influence of marijuana is strictly prohibited. Employers need to know if de-criminalization of marijuana impacts the enforcement of the employer’s policies – and which policies they can continue to enforce.

Join us for a popular webinar with Patricia Eyres, a skilled ADA attorney, will address these issues, and more, to give you a comprehensive look at how to handle opioids and marijuana in the workplace. She will explain practical and legal steps you must take to manage the impact of the opioid epidemic and the growing legalization of medical and recreational marijuana.

You’ll learn:

  • What to consider when updating a drug-free workplace policy in states where recreational and/or medicinal marijuana have been decriminalized
  • The practical impact opioid usage can have worker productivity and safety, and when you have an obligation to take action under OSHA’s general duty clause
  • How to align post-incident drug testing policies with OSHA’s new rule to improve tracking of workplace injuries and illnesses
  • What to do with employees who have chronic pain caused by an industrial injury and the impact on early RTW programs
  • How to cope with leaves, accommodations and performance feedback for employees with long term, chronic conditions (often non-industrial conditions) that require pain management or prescriptions
  • How to recognize a “trigger” to conduct an interactive process under the ADA when opioid dependencies or side effects may require a reasonable accommodation evaluation
  • Differences between FMLA leaves and ADA reasonable accommodations for employees with non-industrial chronic pain
  • What to do if an employee appears impaired on the job
  • What you can and can’t do to enforce drug-free workplace policies where medical and/or recreational marijuana usage is permitted under state law
  • Strategies for improving your drug-free workplace policies—and how to align your benefits programs with such policies
  • How to handle confidentiality and electronic recordkeeping issues so you don’t spark legal liabilities for your organization
  • Steps to take to enforce your drug-use policy without violating the ADA, the FMLA, or other federal laws, such as HIPAA

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
