Event Description


Prescription use by employees – whether legal or illegal – is difficult to handle.  More and more employees are taking benzoids to deal with psychiatric issues.  The abuse of opioid medications is considered to be a national epidemic.  Even over the counter drugs can cause safety concerns.  Employers need to stay vigilant to protect their business and to ensure that they are providing a safe working environment for all.


Each year, alcohol and drug abuse costs American businesses approximately $100 billion in lost productivity.  Employers' primary costs related to addictions are not for the treatment of the disease of addiction.  Instead, they are direct health care costs for related injuries and health problems, and indirect costs for absenteeism, productivity, workplace injuries, workers compensation and disability claims.  Employers clearly have a need to address employees’ use of drugs – even if they are being used legally.  Yet, the law puts many roadblocks to the unwary employer in how to address this difficult and costly issue.


  • The most common prescription drugs that can impair an employee’s ability to perform his/her position.
  • What questions an employer can ask (and when) without running afoul of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
  • Accommodation requirements under the ADA for employees taking legally prescribed medications. 


In this webinar, you will learn about the most commonly abused prescription medications.  We will address issues under the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Family and Medical Leave as well  as what your drug policies should contain.



  • Human resource professionals
  • Risk managers
  • Benefits personnel
