Protect Against Employee Marijuana Impairment Errors & Lawsuits

Length: 60 Minutes Expert: Don Phin, Esq.

More often than ever, employees are testing positive for marijuana at work. And in states where marijuana is legal, your ability to protect your patients and practice from impairment-related errors is even more complicated.

And let’s face it, with the ever-increasing regulations your practice must comply with, even a simple mistake can have dire consequences. To make things more complicated, marijuana is still illegal on a federal level, and drug-testing laws vary not just from state to state but sometimes from county to county.

The only way to protect your practice from massive violation fines and HR lawsuits is to implement concrete marijuana use policies. However, sorting through conflicting county, state, and federal rules and regulations is confusing, time-consuming, and increasingly risky – unless you have some help.

Fortunately, employment law attorney Don Phin, Esq., is here to help. During his one-hour online training, Don will provide you with step-by-step practice-specific strategies for hiring, testing, and corrective action policies you must immediately put into place regarding the complexities of employees using marijuana (regardless of your state’s laws or staff member’s need).

Here are just a few of the strategies for handling marijuana in the workplace that Don will share during his 60-minute online training:

  • Determine how to avoid violating disability laws regarding medical marijuana use
  • Comply with state and federal laws regarding your drug and alcohol policies
  • Halt drug testing confusion with solid employment screening and random drug testing guidelines
  • Uncover how gov’t defined “reasonable suspicion” can dictate staff testing options
  • Proven tactics to defend your practice against employees who are clearly impaired
  • Head of EEOC and OSHA regulation violations regarding “drug-free workplace
  • Master your response if employees reveal addiction histories – how ADA guides next steps
  • Protect against lawsuits when you terminate impaired employees
  • Ace the next steps for employees who refuse drug tests
  • Pinpoint corrective policies for staff members who are found with marijuana in the workplace
  • Establish concrete rules for drug testing after in-office accidents or mishaps occur
  • And much, much more …

IMPORTANT: More than 38 US States currently have some type of legalized marijuana usage law in place. They range from simply decriminalizing the drug to making it fully legal. Knowing how to effectively manage your practice under each type of ruling is essential to the ongoing success of your practice. This online training will walk you through the process.

Studies have proven that staffers who use marijuana are involved in more workplace accidents and are 85% more likely to be injured on the job. It is imperative that you implement bulletproof policies to protect your patients and practice.

You simply can’t afford to miss this critical online training session, particularly as studies show that regular marijuana use is rising. Don’t hesitate—sign up for this must-attend training today.
