Opioids are a powerful and widely-prescribed class of drug, often leading to misuse and addiction. A National Safety Council survey states that more than 70 percent of United States employers are feeling the direct impact of prescription drug misuse in their workplaces. Deaths resulting from or related to drug overdoses, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are on the rise. Now more than ever, employers must know what you can and cannot do to enforce a drug-free workplace policy, ensuring a safe workplace, protecting your business, and steer clear of the Americans with Disabilities Act and other federal and state laws. In this webinar, we will discuss practical and legal options open to you to manage the growing problem of opioid dependence and abuse and its impact on the workplace.
