Leading drug testing and background screening provider ClearStar will sponsor a free webinar titled “Continuing the Discussion: A Deep Dive Into 5 More States’ Drug Testing Laws” hosted by Bill Current, President and Founding Partner of the Current Consulting Group, LLC (CCG), and CCG’s Senior Legal Consultant Yvette Farnsworth Baker, Esq., from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time on Wednesday, September 21, 2022.
Earlier this year, ClearStar and CCG presented a free webinar that looked into the legal status of workplace drug testing in the five most populous states: California, New York, Texas, Florida, and Pennsylvania. That webinar was so successful and well attended that ClearStar and CCG decided to sponsor a second free webinar featuring the next five most populous states: Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, North Carolina, and Georgia. Topics will include:
- Type of law: mandatory, voluntary, workers’ or unemployment comp regulations, or case law
- Lab testing, including certification and confirmation testing
- Point-of-care testing (POCT)
- Testing methods: oral fluid, urine, hair, or others
- Drug-test panel
- Pre-employment & post-hire testing, including the legal status of random testing
- Collection procedures, including split specimen, collector qualifications, and direct observations
- Medical Review Officer (MRO) requirements
- Legal marijuana and its impact on drug testing in each state
This mix of states featured in the webinar is especially interesting because it includes two states with voluntary drug testing laws, one state with an industry-specific drug testing law, and four states with legal marijuana laws that affect workplace drug testing. Current and Farnsworth Baker will cover in detail the legal status of drug testing for each of the five states. To register for the free webinar on September 21, 2022, click here.
Current founded CCG in 1998 and CCG is the number one recognized brand name in compliance, business development, and operations consulting in the drug testing industry. He also created Current Compliance, the only comprehensive online subscription database for all state workplace drug testing laws. Farnsworth Baker is a licensed attorney and member of the bar in Florida who is an expert in drug and alcohol testing case law.
