As the laws change around the use of medical marijuana and the nation continues to deal with the opioid crisis many questions regarding the use of drugs arise. One such question is, “How do we navigate drug use in the workplace?” Drug use in the workplace can be present in multiple scenarios ranging from prescription use to substance abuse and each scenario must be dealt with differently and specific to each case. In a comprehensive (and complimentary) breakfast workshop, the experienced Labor and Employment attorneys of Offit Kurman will discuss the precarious circumstances and how you can properly mitigate risk to your business and employees in regards to drugs in the workplace and drug testing.
Topics to be covered include:
- Proper procedures for drug testing
- Medical marijuana and the rights of both your employee and company
- The effects of substance abuse on the business
Being aware of how drug use can permeate the workplace is crucial and knowing how to navigate that situation delicately is imperative to the success and safety of both your business and employees.
