The unfortunate truth is the use of illicit drugs continues to be a persistent, growing problem in Wisconsin communities. What do I, as owner, CEO, or HR leader, do to protect my company? This widespread epidemic is in your workplace – no business type or profession is immune. Many employers think their policy is enough to protect their business – think again. Employers need to address this problem head-on, especially given the new federal regulations and state actions legalizing marijuana which has complicated the issue and rendered some of the old accepted policies and procedures obsolete. This program will address:
- the scope of the drug problem, the many ways it can impact your organization; and identifying some of the signs associated with drug use;
- the impact of new laws and recommended policies and procedures in their wake; and
- the strategies employers can legally implement to effectively manage the risks associated with drug abuse in today’s environment.
Speakers will include, James Kalny, Anthony Steffek, Steven F. Baue, President and Owner of ERC, Inc., and Jim Pecard, Director of EAP Services, of ERC, Inc.
