The DOT's new drug and alcohol testing regulations, which took effect on January 1, 2018, included expanded opioid testing and a revised significant safety concern procedure under 49 CFR part 40.135. The significant safety concern letter issued by the MRO to the DER is leaving MROs, TPAs, employers and medical examiners confused and concerned. Participate in a 60-minute webinar with management labor and drug testing attorney Tommy Eden of Constangy, Brooks, Smith & Prophete, LLP and walk away with a well-though out five-step plan for making a legally defensible fitness-for-duty determination.

By the end of this webinar, attendees will understand:

  • How to build a firm foundation with updated job descriptions, DOT policy and employee handbook;
  • Why it is necessary to act immediately on the MRO’s significant safety concern letter;
  • How to effectively select and use outside medical evaluators;
  • Why retaining a Consulting MRO/Certified Medical Examiner/Occupational Physician to help guide the final fitness-for-duty process is a great risk reduction step; and
  • How to quickly pull it all together with a fitness-for-duty written determination so that your final decision becomes legally defensible.
