ADA Interaction With Addictions and Personal Habits, by Lorman

ADA Interaction With Addictions and Personal Habits is brought to you by Lorman

Learn how to handle the complex issues that can arise when dealing with addictions in the workplace.

The Americans with Disabilities Act is complicated and filled with traps for unwary employers. Employers focused on efficiency or reduction of disruptions may seek to root out someone they think is using drugs. But can you do that? What if you’re wrong? You could end up paying a significant legal judgment for disability discrimination. This topic will help avoid that result by examining when the ADA is implicated by individuals presenting addictions or other problematic behaviors as well as what actions you can take – and what actions you must take – when you believe an individual is illegally using drugs or using alcohol improperly to comply with the law and protect your business.
