Waste companies face a number of staffing challenges related to recruitment and retention, but one of the most important considerations for cultivating a healthy and productive workforce involves identifying and addressing potential substance abuse issues before they become a problem.
With this challenge in mind, the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) hosted a webinar on Nov. 10 titled, “Controlling Drugs and Alcohol in the Workplace: Employer Liabilities and Solutions Program.”
Panelists on the webinar included Mark Lies, partner at Chicago-based law firm Seyfarth Shaw LLP, and Adam Young, associate at Seyfarth Shaw LLP. Seyfarth Shaw LLP provides advisory, litigation and transactional legal services to clients around the world through its network of 900 lawyers across 16 offices. Among its areas of expertise are matters concerning background checks, drug testing and other facets of employment law.
