Webinar
4.3.18 | Tuesday Noon - 1:00 p.m. EDT
The DOT's new drug and alcohol testing regulations, which became effective January 1, included expanded opioid testing and a revised significant safety concern procedure under 49 CFR part 40.135. Dealing with the significant safety concern letter issued by the medical review officer to the designated employer representative is leaving MROs, third party administrators, employers, and medical examiners confused and concerned. Participate in a 60-minute webinar with management labor and drug testing attorney Tommy Eden, of Constangy, Brooks, Smith & Prophete, LLP, and his Macon Office Partner Jeff Thompson, who represents many DOT- regulated employers, and you will walk away with a well-thought out five-step plan for making a legally defensible fitness for duty determination under the new DOT regulations.
 
Key learning objectives: 
•   how to build a firm foundation with updated job descriptions, DOT policy and employee handbook 
•   why it is necessary to act immediately on the MRO's significant safety concern letter
•   how to effectively select and use outside medical evaluators
•   why it is a great risk reduction step to retain a Consulting MRO/Certified Medical Examiner/ Occupational Physician to help guide the final fitness for duty process
•  how to create a written determination showing that your decision was legally defensible
