REASONABLE SUSPICION TRAINING-Are your Managers/Supers trained to recognize substance abuse?

May 23, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

What You as an Employer Need to Know

Brought to you by Vermont Truck & Bus Association and Associated General Contractors of Vermont/Project RoadSafe in cooperation with Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles and Downs Rachlin Martin PLLC.

Here is your chance to get clarification from the enforcers of regulations and those who know labor and employment law. Don’t miss this opportunity!

Primary Topics:

  • Examining Vermont State laws impacting employee discipline issues;
  • Learning best practices in documentation of employee misconduct;
  • Developing a fair approach to determining if discipline is appropriate;
  • Obtaining discipline and discharge checklists;
  • Identifying distinctions between “at-will” and “for cause;”
  • Exploring benefits of separation agreements and releases.
  • How to avoid the pitfalls of employee discipline and discharge

FMCSA 49 CFR 382.603 requires “Each employer shall ensure that all persons designated to supervise drivers receive at least 60 minutes of training on alcohol misuse and receive at least an additional 60 minutes of training on controlled substances use.”

Employees are your greatest asset. Having clear goals and expectations is essential in managing employee job performance, but what happens when things don’t go as planned and you suspect an employee is under the influence? This seminar will review how to manage poor job performance and support your employees while at the same time protecting your organization. Don’t think drug addiction doesn’t affect your company! Be prepared!
