Alcohol and drug abuse cost American businesses about $100 billion in lost productivity each year, and are contributing factors in countless workplace accidents and fatalities. Substance abuse on the job poses hazards not only to the users themselves, but also to other employees (and sometimes customers as well).
An effective drug and alcohol testing program is one of an employer's best weapons, but making sure you abide by the requirements of various California and federal laws can get tremendously complicated. How can you establish an effective program that doesn't cause potential legal headaches down the road?
Find out by attending our webinar on June 20. Our presenter, a seasoned California employment law attorney, will explain exactly what you can—and can't—do in this area. You'll learn:
- The various California and federal laws you must consider when developing a drug and alcohol testing program
- How to assess your existing program to determine—and fix—potential gaps
- Best practices for on-the-job drug and alcohol testing
- What should you include in your substance abuse prevention policy
- How to make sure that employee privacy rights are properly addressed
- The pros and cons of a "zero-tolerance" policy
- Testing considerations—pre-employment, routine, random, and following an accident
- The legal strategies and remedies you should you consider if you're threatened with a lawsuit

How Do Webinars Work?
A webinar is remarkably cost-effective and convenient. You participate from your office, using a regular telephone and a computer with an Internet connection. You have no travel costs and no out-of-office time.
Plus, for one low price, you can get as many people in your office to participate as you can fit around a speakerphone and a computer screen.
Because the conference is live, you can ask the speakers questions—either on the phone or via the webinar interface.
You will receive access instructions via e-mail several days before the event. You don't need any additional materials before the webinar starts. Your conference materials will be available for you to view, print, and download when you log in to participate in the event.
