Alcohol and drug treatment centers save lives. But legal and compliance risk threatens your ability to perform your calling. Ignoring that risk can stunt your growth, put you out of business, or worse, land you in jail. To reduce your legal and compliance risk, you must first know what that risk is. Treatment centers today face legal and compliance risk from many different areas. Assessing and reducing that risk requires a multi-disciplinary approach and expertise in all of the areas where you face risk.
Balch & Bingham LLP is a full-service law firm uniquely situated to advise treatment centers in all of the areas where they face risk. In this series of webinars, they present speakers from its different practice groups in the major topic areas of legal and compliance risk affecting treatment centers, including:
- Payment risk
- Statutory and regulatory risk
- Labor & employment risk
- Business risk
In Part III of this series, Balch & Bingham LLP partners Walter Boone and Christy White will outline the risks treatment centers face in the labor and employment arena. In this webinar, you will learn some basic information about:
- Which statutory and regulatory schemes apply to treatment centers;
- Key provisions which you should consider for your employment and independent contractor agreements; and
- Important components of any employee handbook and policies and procedures manual.
At the conclusion of the webinar, you will be able to start your own inventory in this area and get into action with tools and resources to reduce your labor and employment risk.
