Best Management of Your Workforce in the Midst of the Opioid Epidemic: Drug Testing, FMLA Abuse and ADA Obligations

April 17, 2019
SmithAmundsen Seminar, Milwaukee, WI; Webinar
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Your employees are more likely to die from an opioid overdose than a car crash. It's a recently published statistic, and a startling one to come to terms with. According to the National Safety Council, your chances of dying in a car crash are 1 in 103, while your chances of dying from an opioid overdose are 1 in 96. These numbers only account for opioid use and do not include the use of other drugs.

It is simply unrealistic to believe your workforce is exempt from the current crisis. While a certain level of empathy may be appropriate, employers that are too lenient and forgiving learn quickly (and often painfully) that no good deed goes unpunished.

Join Rebecca Dobbs Bush and Deborah Krukowski on Wednesday, April 17 at 12:00 PM CT for the latest installment of our Labor & Employment Quarterly Series. They will discuss the ways opioids can impact employers, as well as proactive ways employers can approach the opioid crisis in the workforce. Specific topics covered include:

Who should attend? HR professionals, managers, and business owners
