POSTING REQUIREMENTS

All-In-One Required Posters for EmployersHave you received an email from a poster company warning you that you might not be in compliance with the latest posting requirements?

We've received questions from several of our clients recently regarding these emails. Please keep in mind that poster companies are trying to make a sale and often the actual requirement behind the hype doesn't amount to much. In the most two recent emails we've seen, one applied to such a narrow group of employers (Employers that pay into Unemployment Insurance but are not subject to SDI) that none of our clients would be affected and the other referred to a posting requirement that is under consideration (Employees must be notified of their rights under the National labor Relations Act) but hasn't been approved.

We work hard at HRI to stay up-to-date and make sure that all of our clients are in compliance. If you are unsure about the requirements for your company, or if an email has you wondering, please contact us at 925.556.4404. We're happy to answer your questions and as always, we'll keep you current with all your posting needs.

DRUGS AND ALCOHOL IN THE WORKPLACE

Did you know?

  • More than 70% of substance abusers hold jobs
  • One in four workers between the ages of 18 and 34 used drugs in the past year; and
  • One worker in three knows where to purchase drugs in the workplace

The American Council for Drug Education states that Americans consume 60% of the world's production of illegal drugs: 23 million use marijuana at least four times a week; 6 million use cocaine; and 2 million use heroin. That's in addition to the 18 million that abuse alcohol.

What does that mean for the employer? It's unfortunate, but drug and alcohol related issues increase the risk of accidents, lower productivity, raise insurance costs, and reduce profits. The can damage your company image, and may also jeopardize your product quality and company competitiveness. Employees abusing drug and/or alcohol are 10 times more likely to miss work, 5 times more likely to cause on-the-job accidents, 5 times more likely to file a workers' compensation claim and 33% less productive. They are also responsible for 40% of all industrial fatalities.

  • Is your Drug and Alcohol Policy up to date?
  • Do you know the signs of abuse?
  • Have you trained your managers in identifying and dealing with substance abusers?
  • Do you have an Employee Assistance Program?

If you answered no or you need assistance resolving a drug or alcohol related issue, sign up for our Reasonable Suspicion: Drugs, Narcotics & Alcohol Seminar or call us at 925.556.4404.
