DETAILS:

According to a June 2021 report from the American Medical Association, COVID-19 has increased drug abuse. Information from health agencies, law enforcement, emergency medical services, research journals and other sources indicates that every state has experienced a spike in overdoses or related problems during the pandemic. For employers, this is particularly concerning from a workplace safety and productivity perspective, especially in the face of potential regulatory testing changes. During these webinars, First Advantage will explore the state of drug screening and share expert insights to help employers navigate this “new” future.

“In the Weeds on Today’s Drug Testing Landscape”

On August 31, Josephine Kenney, Chief Global Compliance Officer for First Advantage, will join Bill Current, President and Founder of Current Consulting Group, to discuss the findings of this year’s employer drug testing survey conducted by Current’s organization. Kenney and Current will examine what’s happening now, the leading trends shaping employers’ actions and consider how employers can better manage the challenges of today’s drug screening landscape. Approved for one (1) continuing education credit hour from SHRM and HRCI.

Session attendees will hear about macro trends in drug testing and compliance, including thoughts and considerations related to marijuana screening, and learn about changes in candidate onboarding expectations, complete with drug screening program suggestions that can help businesses onboard faster and reduce candidate drop-offs.
