First Friday Webinar

Are Your Employees Partying Like It’s 2020?
A Drug/Alcohol Testing Legal Update

Employers face myriad issues when deciding whether to implement and enforce workplace drug and alcohol testing policies.  The current tight labor market and recent developments on the legalization of marijuana in some jurisdictions have only added to the considerations employers must take into account.  What you can and can’t do differs by jurisdiction, as well as whether the employer is in the private sector or is a public sector/government employer.

Join Rembolt Ludtke attorneys Mark Fahleson and Tara Tesmer Paulson for this month’s First Friday webinar, during which they will discuss:

  • Pre-employment drug testing policies
  • Incumbent employee drug/alcohol testing policies
  • Testing protocols
  • Random drug testing
  • Reasonable suspicion drug testing
  • Medical and recreational marijuana
  • ADA issues
  • DOT requirements
  • Employee discipline
  • Use of drug/alcohol testing results in workers’ comp and unemployment cases
