Here are a few excerpts from our latest edition:
From Charley Galassini, Chapter President - "A couple special points of interest, the Board decided to raffle a trip to the Annual EAPA conference. To win this prize you must be a member and present to claim your prize. For those of you who want to know, this year’s conference is going to be held in Los Angeles. The dates are October 3-6. This prize will include the flight, registration, and lodging, so it is truly worth being at this year’s conference. Also, we will be raffling two registrations for the 2018 NIEAPA Conference."
From Paul J. Fitzgerald, Chapter VP's article - "Employers have had fairly wide latitude and a sense of obligation under federal drug-free workplace guidelines, to enforce zero tolerance policies for drug use by employees. Although they stress safety and freedom from impairment in their wording, these policies have not always been focused on the safety-sensitive nature of the positions in question. Now that a number of states have begun passing medical marijuana laws, and some have legalized recreational marijuana use, employers and EAPs need to be aware of possible changes in the way that marijuana is treated."
