Recognizing and Responding to Drug Use in the Workplace

Course Description

Organizational leaders have compelling reasons to enforce
their company’s drug and alcohol policies, but they must
first provide training for their supervisors to help them
understand the complexities of enforcement.

Recent legal challenges have emphasized the need for
supervisors to understand the multitude of laws and
regulations that affect employee rights and privacy in
the workplace.

After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the most common signs or symptoms displayed by an employee who is under the influence of alcohol or other drugs.
  • Define the steps to follow leading up to a decision to have the employee take a reasonable suspicion test.
  • Describe how the Employee Assistance Program can be utilized in resolving a work performance problem when the cause of the problem is not readily identifiable to the supervisor.
  • Describe the various employment actions resulting from a positive drug test including last chance agreements.
