According to the U.S. government, 11 percent of the full-time adult workforce regularly engages in illegal drug use. Substance abuse can pose many serious risks for employers including increased losses in productivity, absenteeism, turnover, health care costs, product defects and – most importantly – accidents. More companies are implementing comprehensive substance abuse prevention policies and programs that – even in good faith – may leave them vulnerable to lawsuits and may undermine the intended effect of deterrence.

Our presenter, Mark A. de Bernardo, a Senior Partner at the national law firm of Jackson Lewis.
