Use and abuse of prescription and over-the-counter medications is rampant, according to a recent report from the Centers for Disease Control. Because even legal medications can adversely affect an employee's ability to work safely, exercise good judgment, and operate equipment, employers need to address the use of legal, as well as illegal, medications in their drug-free workplace policies.
But in dealing with legal medications employers do not want to run afoul of state and federal laws prohibiting disability-based discrimination, including the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
This fast-paced and entertaining webinar with Constangy attorneys Tommy Eden and Sarah Phaff will guide you through the legal maze so that you can ensure a safe workplace without violating the law. Tommy and Sarah both work with private and public employers nationwide to help solve some of the most challenging drug-free workplace issues.
