About This Course:
Workplace substance abuse and drug/alcohol testing presents a wide variety of landmines employers must navigate to ensure legal compliance.

While testing serves a wide variety of business purposes ranging from screening out applicants who are current illegal drugs users to minimizing workplace accidents and work related injuries and improving employee attendance, navigating the requirements of the legal landscape in these areas can be daunting.

Receive a working understanding of both government regulated (U.S. Department of Transportation) as well as nonregulated workplace testing requirements under the laws of multiple states.

Answers to difficult questions will be provided such as employer rights when employees claim lawful medical or recreational marijuana use under state law that would otherwise be prohibited by policy, how to treat prescription drug use that could create safety issues, leave for treatment scenarios and voluntary disclosures of illegal drug use or drug/alcohol abuse.
