Drugs in the Workplace
San Diego, California
Howard Mavity presents at the NBWA: America's Beer Distributors 2018 Annual Convention on "Drugs in the Workplace."
Under federal law and most states’ laws, employers have the right to require employees to report to work free from the presence of unlawfully-used drugs and to take adverse action against them if they are in violation…for now. A number of states have passed new legislation and various state courts have held that under a few states’ laws, the employer has a duty to accommodate the marijuana usage – a position that ignores safety hazards and performance issues. Howard Mavity will discuss the current legal environment of drugs and potential changes you need to watch. Mavity will cover safety concerns and possible action points, as well as the potentially devastating opioid epidemic already harming many industries and demanding new responses.
