Substance Use, Abuse & Testing

Between expansive legislation that decriminalizes and legalizes marijuana and the opioid epidemic, it is becoming harder for employers to ensure workplace safety, productivity and administer related testing. Join this interactive program as we review:

  • how employers can balance federal law that still classifies marijuana as an illegal substance and state laws that permit its use for various reasons or in varying amounts;
  • when an employer may take adverse action against an applicant or employee who tests positive for substance use;
  • how an employer may conduct substance testing;
  • what duty, if any an employee has to inform an employer of the use of prescribed or otherwise legal drugs;
  • and more.
