Join Atlanta-based attorney, Howard Mavity for his next two webinars as he discusses workplace drug issues and OSHA under the Trump administration. 


Workplace Drug Issues are Back: Different and Uglier than Ever
Employers starting  battling drugs in the workplace in the 80s and 90s, Just as both parties launched a “War on Drugs,” Federal and State governments created a whole new type of regulatory process, including the DOT regulations and numerous State laws. For the next 16 odd years, workplace unlawful drug use declined, and drug testing and drug and alcohol policies became routine and caused few problems. Employers wrestled with other challenges. Starting in 2014 and 2015, trends reversed and positive test results began to increase, and to the horror of those who lived in the 60s, opiate abuse has surged by double digits.  In this session, we’ll discuss drug abuse trends, including abuse of prescription pain killers, issues posed by state legalization of medical and recreational marijuana use, how to respond to lawful but potentially hazardous drug use in the workplace, and the new OSHA regulations.

It’s Been One Month: What do We Know about OSHA Under the Trump Administration (and What’s important in 2017)?
This webinar will discuss
what we’ve learned about OSHA’s focus under the Trump Administration, as well as lessons from 2016. While some enforcement focuses will change, and once an Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA takes the helm, that change will increase. But many newer compliance obligations will remain. The Fed-OSHA Administrative Law Judges appointed by President Obama will continue their approach to multiemployer citation policy, the affirmative defense of unpreventable employee misconduct, and close scrutiny of employer safety plans. We’ll also focus on common employer compliance mistakes and flaws in employer safety efforts, as well as a shout out to Cal-OSHA’s new initiatives ranging from repeat citations to workplace violence.
