Addiction knows no socioeconomic boundaries. Attorneys have a higher addiction rate than other people, and studies show that at least 10% of attorneys have some substance abuse problems. While addiction may know no boundaries, impaired attorneys create special challenges. In addition, substance abuse is one of the top causes of malpractice. Yet, confronting professionals is not risk free either. Join this session to discuss how to respond if someone at your firm has a drug or alcohol problem. Learn the warning signals, and how to avoid the confidentiality, privacy and other legal considerations implicated by interventions that go beyond the American Disabilities Act.
Discuss addiction in general and its prevalence among attorneys in particular
Identify potential warning signs of an impaired worker
Explain mandatory and voluntary referrals as well as ethical considerations
Determine how to respond if an attorney or staff member self-identifies as having a drug or alcohol problem
Examine methods for confronting an attorney or staff member, directly and indirectly
Audience: Attendees should have a working knowledge of employment law in the legal industry. No advance preparation is required.
