More Information


Employee terminations are fraught with enough legal risks on their own, without complicating the decision further by having to deal with workplace drug testing.

There is a right and wrong way for employers who institute drug free workplace programs to discharge employees for violating their policy and program, and also to reduce the legal risk.

Watch this fast-paced, SHRM/HRCI-accredited session, and learn how you can avoid the 10 most common mistakes.
