Shana Palmieri, Mollie Slater
Employee substance abuse is a costly and dangerous problem for federal workplaces, especially when it comes to safety and productivity. Yet, many federal supervisors fail to address the situation appropriately. FELTG is here to do something about that.
Healthcare attorney Mollie Slater and Shana Palmieri, a licensed clinical social worker, will share strategies for reducing risk for substance-abuse issues and aligning agency processes to fit within the scope of the law, while promoting a safe and productive workplace. You will leave this 90-minute webinar knowing how to successfully navigate the legally complex relationship employers have with healthcare providers. You will also gain the knowledge and skills to effectively and appropriately take action when substance abuse impacts workplace safety and productivity.
Attendees will also learn:
- When substance abuse is reason for termination.
- The privacy standards applicable to employees and patients.
- How to effectively manage the medical clearance process for employees returning to work after they receive substance abuse treatment.
This class focuses most of its emphasis on the practical and clinical side of managing employees with substance abuse issues, and trains you how to identify and work with people who have addiction issues. You won’t want to miss it.
