The United States is in the midst of an opioid epidemic. Drug overdose is now the leading cause of accidental death in the U.S. This crisis is the subject of litigation and is affecting businesses, manufacturing companies, transportation services, schools, workplaces and the healthcare industry.
Our attorneys, Tracy Walsh and Jennifer Laver, will discuss employment and workers' compensation laws applicable to substance abuse in the workplace. They will cover the growing opioid epidemic, pre-employment drug screening, navigating steps when an employer suspects an employee addiction problem and work-related injuries with employees taking opioid prescriptions.
