Overview:

Jo will walk the participants through the types of drug tests available for the workplace, describing the competencies of each as well as the appropriate reasons to use each methodology.

The audience will gain a clear understanding of when to use – and NOT to use – each particular type of test as well as what is new in developing technologies, improving an employer’s ability to detect recent substance use.

Why you should Attend:Employers often turn to attorneys to write their drug and alcohol testing policies, which works well if the attorney has an understanding of how drug testing works and keeps up on the changing technologies in testing products.

Unfortunately, many policies are either outdated in the drug testing portion or not based on accurate science.
