Under the Influence: Drugs, Alcohol and the Workplace
October 13 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am EDT$79.00
Over 30 million adults currently abuse drugs in the United States. Drug abuse and addiction cost employers over $81 billion annually. Adding to these alarming statistics, 2020 was one of the highest-ever years for drug overdoses, and recent studies are beginning to reveal major increases in the number of American workers impacted by alcohol abuse and binge drinking since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Productivity, safety, and even the financial health of today’s businesses and organizations are at risk of being impacted by drug and alcohol abuse. Employers must stay current, continually educating themselves on the topics of opioid use, marijuana laws, signs of abuse in the workplace, and other risk factors. Join DCSI in this one-hour webinar to discuss the challenges for today’s employers, as well as best practices for managing abuse, addressing attendance and productivity issues, and getting employees the help they may need.
