Reasonable Suspicion Training and
Medical Cannabis in the Workplace

COURSE DESCRIPTION: This 3-hour training enhances the practical application skills of supervisors and managers for identifying and responding to employee impairment. Participants will learn about the “four rules” for responding to suspected employee impairment, what “reasonable suspicion” really means, the most commonly used drugs of abuse and their signs of impairment, adulteration of urine specimens, and common barriers that prevent supervisors and managers from reporting suspected impairment, even when they know that they should. The final portion of this seminar focuses on the employee confrontation, offering proven tips and techniques that boost supervisor effectiveness when informing an employee they will be drug tested. Knowledge checks are peppered throughout to increase content retention and a case vignette concludes this training to increase participant comfort and confidence with application.

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES: Upon completion of this seminar, participants will be able to:
1) Reiterate the four rules for responding to suspected employee impairment.
2) Identify personal barriers that inhibit the reporting process.
3) Discuss the most common drugs of abuse and their signs of impairment.
4) Describe (and demonstrate) an effective, non-confrontational conversation with an employee suspected of impairment.
