Alcohol and drug addictions cost employers billions of dollars every year. Addictions are a growing problem in our country, and every employer will likely have an employee struggling through this common disease.
Why should you attend?
Every employer - large or small - eventually has to deal with an employee who has an alcohol or drug addiction. The costs to the employer are extensive - and not just in direct health care costs. Employees with addictions have absenteeism issues, production issues, and are more likely to have a work related injury. It is unfortunate when an employer has not had the foresight to have a solid drug and alcohol policy in place prior to facing with an actual issue. Without these policies, employees do not know what to expect, and employers wonder what they can legally do and what they should do as a practical matter. This webinar will walk you through legal issues associated with addictions and how to write a strong drug and alcohol policy.
