Sex, Drugs & Rock n Roll–Welcome to the New Work Scene

Monday 10:00 – 11:00 AM

Session Description

Thought that title might attract your attention. Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll sums up many of the new HR conversations taking place today. HR professionals used to deal with substance abuse in limited situations and occasionally a harassment dispute. Today, the spotlight is focused on the opioid epidemic and the #MeToo movement. Now instead of being immediately terminated if tested positive for substance abuse, employers are working with employees to help them recover. With sexual harassment and zero tolerance policies, employees are terminated if an investigation confirms a harassment claim. The landscape is changing and organizations have to adapt.
