Event Description



Employee substance abuse could be costing your organization big bucks – especially if you don’t have an anti-drug workplace program! Worker substance abuse costs U.S. businesses an estimated $75 billion per year.

The added costs to conduct drug testing can be a big deterrent for many businesses. So why test at the hiring stage or randomly thereafter? Up to 65 percent of all work-related accidents can be traced to substance abuse – and that’s not all. Employee drug use costs businesses lost productivity, more defective products, greater absenteeism, lost profits, more on-the-job accidents, higher turnover, theft and higher health-care costs. Drug-using employees are also 5 times more likely to file workers’ compensation claims!

Join expert speaker Barry Nadell as he takes you step-by-step through all the applicable laws, best practices and items to consider regarding anti-drug workplace policies. Whether your organization is thinking about starting a drug-testing program or already has one in place but you aren’t sure if it’s up-to-par, this revealing discussion will arm you with the information you need to create (or refine) your own anti-drug program!
Here's some of what you'll learn in this eye-opening, informative conference:

  • How to decide whether drug testing is appropriate for your organization.
  • Find out if you’re required to test some or all of your employees.
  • Don’t get hung out to dry! Learn the economics of anti-drug workplace programs – what are the real costs and monetary advantages of drug testing?
  • What should a drug-testing policy include?
  • How to handle a positive test result or a refusal to take the test.
  • Weigh the pros and cons – including costs and convenience – of different drug-testing methods.
  • What to do to avoid legal problems – and your state’s drug-testing laws.
  • And much more!

You're sure to walk away with all the tools and knowledge you need to protect your workplace from drug- and alcohol-related accidents, absenteeism and productivity issues!
