Workplace Drug Testing During COVID-19: What Employers Should Know - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

Program Length: 60 minutes

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: As the opioid crisis has been escalating and the marijuana legalization movement has also recently grown, discover strategies and best practices for navigating the challenging issue of drug testing for employers.

The opioid crisis has escalated dramatically in the past decade across the country, and those affected may also be your employees. At the same time, the marijuana legalization movement has grown, and several states now not only permit medical marijuana but also recreational marijuana.

Making matters worse, we are in the middle of a global pandemic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has reported a substantial increase in drug misuse as people seek to self-medicate their way through the crisis due to stress, lack of employment, financial pressure, family and childcare instabilities, and fear of themselves or loved ones being exposed to or infected by the virus.

This webinar will address strategies and best practices for navigating this challenging issue for employers.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the restrictions for conducting drug tests for employees.
  • Recognize the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on drug testing.
  • Identify best practices for conducting drug tests and managing the results.
