Opioid and prescription painkiller use and abuse has hit most workplaces with a wide array of legitimate concerns for the employer. Questions abound as to drug testing, addressing workplace safety, compliance with the ADA, and rising costs to the employer. A good percentage of the workforce is presently under the influence of prescription medications, and addiction of pain medications has led to absenteeism, impairment and a negative impact in the workplace.
This Breakfast Briefing session will cover the applicable legal questions and explore a look at the answers for handling the rising epidemic of misuse or abuse of prescribed medications spilling over into the workplace.
There is no cost to attend this briefing, but seats are limited and will likely fill up fast.
Complimentary breakfast included.
