Description:

Does your company have a policy and procedure addressing the use and possible abuse of prescription drugs? Many do not, which can lead to legal challenges related to OSHA, FMLA, ADA, and more.

Prescription medications are great for people who suffer pain from injuries or surgery to have a better quality of life when they are used correctly. But painkiller abuse has become a disturbing epidemic in this country, an epidemic that reaches into your workplace.

Employers have the legal responsibility to provide a safe workplace for all employees, and drug use, prescribed or illegal, presents a challenge to employers. Assuring that all employees can, and are, performing job tasks in a safe and critical manner is key not only in protecting all employees but also in managing accident costs such as workers’ compensation, asset damage, and production disruption.

Join us when Susan Desmond, Principal at Jackson Lewis, will teach attendees how they can assure their programs are not only defensibly legal but address real and potential risks in the workplace.

You’ll learn to:

  • Identify typical behavior and signs of someone using/abusing prescription drugs
  • Develop best practices for a prescription drug use/abuse policy for your organization
  • Decide how your EAP should be structured when questionable and unsafe use/abuse situations surface
  • Navigate the legal issues of OSHA, FMLA, ADA, and other regulations related to use/abuse of prescription drugs
  • Implement learning tools to train your management team how to determine whether someone is “under the influence” from prescription drugs

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.
