Many companies today conduct drug testing, but they often lack an up-to-date, well- written policy that can protect them if a workplace substance issue arises.
Melbourne, FL (PRWEB) February 06, 2013
Edge Information Management, Inc., a prominent provider of employment screening solutions, is offering an educational webinar entitled: Getting the Most Out of Your Drug Testing Policy. The webinar will be presented by Bill Current, President and founder of WFC & Associates, LLC, a national consulting firm that specializes in drug testing policy development and providing accurate drug testing law information to its clients.
Drug abuse is on the rise in America and employers can be held liable if they do not maintain a drug-free workplace program. Of course, many companies today conduct drug testing, but they often lack an up-to-date, well- written policy that can protect them if a workplace substance issue arises. By offering this free webinar, Edge and Mr. Current hope to educate companies, both big and small, on the benefit of having a successful drug-free workplace program in place.
In this informative webinar, attendees will learn:
- The five essential components of a comprehensive and compliant drug testing policy.
- How to accurately identify their drug testing objectives and create a policy that maximizes those objectives.
- How to correctly comply with applicable state laws for drug testing.
