    Event Description:
    This is a program of the Business and Industry Association, New Hampshire's Statewide Chamber of Commerce.  Special member pricing is available to members of the Chamber Collaborative of Greater Portsmouth.

    What can you do if employees report a co-worker to HR for suspected heroin use? What if someone comes into the office with a legal prescription for marijuana? Does a person in 12-step programs who relapses have more legal protections than one who isn’t? What resources can employers provide to help workers achieve sobriety? Are you required to make accommodations when they return to your workplace?

    Please join BIA for "An Employers' Guide to Opioids in the Workplace, presented by Tufts Health Freedom Plan." This informative luncheon will take place on Wednesday, September 27th from 11:30am - 1:30pm at the Sheraton Harborside Hotel, Portsmouth. A panel of experts will explore the legal, medical, and social ramifications of opioid and other substance abuse on large and small businesses. Discussion will focus around risks and responsibilities of employers with addicted workers or their dependents, as well as options and accommodations to help troubled employees into recovery. 

    Panelists include:

    Steve Kozak, Tufts Health Plan

    Charla Bizios Stevens, McLane Middleton, PA

    Cheryle Pacapelli, Peer Recovery Support Services Facilitating Organization, Harbor Homes, Inc.
