Attorneys Frank, Carannante and Hinton to Present "Addiction in the Workplace: A Legal Perspective"
Monte E. Frank, vice chair of Pullman & Comley’s Litigation practice, will be joined by Megan Carannante and Robert Hinton, both of whom are members of Pullman & Comley’s Labor, Employment Law and Employee Benefits practice, and Daniel G. Tobin, MD, FACP, Associate Professor of Medicine at Yale University School of Medicine.
As an employer, imagine the following scenarios:
- A prospective employee tests positive for buprenorphine at their pre-onboarding physical.
- A long-time employee tests positive for an illegal substance during a routine urine toxicology screen.
- An employee is missing deadlines, has several questionable absences and you suspect you smell alcohol on their breath one morning.
- An employee in recovery files a lawsuit for wrongful termination.
- An employee asks to be allowed to miss work to visit the methadone clinic.
The program will address questions that arise in these circumstances, including:
- What are your rights and obligations as an employer?
- How can you balance those with being a compassionate citizen?
- What rights do employees in recovery have?
- How does the Family and Medical Leave Act pertain to addiction?
- What reasonable accommodations must be given under the ADA?
- When is drug testing permissible?
