We all know that using drugs impairs decision-making abilities and physically impairs people causing an extremely dangerous and expensive combination for any business. Not only will your company morale and productivity suffer when drugs and alcohol abuse is a factor, but safety issues can arise that endanger the health and well-being of other employees, customers, visitors, and ultimately the business itself.


So how can you be sure that your employees are not under the influence of legal or illegal drugs or alcohol? Do your workplace policies cover drug and alcohol abuse, possession, and distribution? Do you have a drug-testing policy? Where do your turn for your drug testing processes and services? ​

You are invited to a FREE workshop co-presented by Andrew Bennett of Alliant Human Resources, and Gauri Bhalakia, president of ARCpoint Labs of Southborough-Framingham to learn all about the issues of substance abuse and drug testing in the workplace. Topics covered will include:


  • The impact of drug and alcohol abuse in the workplace.

  • Changing marijuana laws and the effect on workplace policy.

  • The importance of a drug and alcohol policy.

  • The signs of drug- and alcohol-related problems.

  • Massachusetts rules and laws regarding workplace drug testing.

  • The elements of drug testing.

  • The drug testing process.

  • What to do with drug testing results.


All employers must have a complete understanding of drug and alcohol testing, and have legally compliant policies and procedures in place to ensure a drug and alcohol-free work environment.
