While many employers are focusing on how to handle marijuana and opiates in the workplace, perhaps the more significant issue is how to prepare for and deal with disability discrimination as it relates to these drugs, which is costing employers millions. For example, can employers refuse to hire someone who can’t pass a drug test because of opiate use? Is it okay to employ an individual who is taking prescribed methadone as a terminal manager for a truck company?
The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal law that protects the disabled, but each state has its own set of rules. Do you know the rules that impact your drug free workplace program? Do you know who is considered disabled? Do you know what the interactive process is – who initiates it? What is 'reasonable accommodation'? And how do each of these relate to employee drug testing?
The questions that employers face when it comes to drug testing and disability laws go on and on. Join attorney and industry expert Bill Judge during this educational and enlightening webinar to understand what is needed to avoid disability discrimination cases related to marijuana and opiate use in the workplace.
