Each additional phone line will be billed at the LHA Member/Non-Member rate. Advance registration and payment is REQUIRED to ensure delivery of instructional materials.

WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE: C-suite leadership, executive positions and healthcare human resources professionals

OVERVIEWNow more than ever, employers encounter issues with employees who suffer from alcoholism, drug abuse and mental health issues.  Whether such issues cause performance issues, prompt leave requests or necessitate separation, the laws related to these issues are both varied and complex. This webinar will navigate an employer’s legal obligations under the American with Disabilities Act (ADA), Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), state drug testing statutes and other relevant laws.

OBJECTIVES:

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Understand an employer’s basic legal obligations when employees report substance abuse or mental health issues;
  • Identify whether the underlying condition is protected under relevant federal or state law;
  • Apply FMLA requirements appropriately when required; and
  • Determine whether a reasonable accommodation is necessary under ADA to enable the person to perform essential functions of the position.
