Please tune in to DFW's webinar on Thursday, April 9th, "Vaping is the New Smoking. Compliance concerns related to tobacco incentives and penalties?" presented by Jason Sheffield, JD.
Tobacco and vaping users impact productivity and health care costs. However, employers often fail to recognize the compliance implications associated with non-tobacco and vaping cessation incentives, as well as the related regulatory penalties. We have all heard the statistics regarding the cost of a smoker on an employer-sponsored benefit plan, or directly to employee productivity, but what can you do? This program provides a deep dive into the regulatory constraints placed upon the employer related to smoking and vaping cessation, while taking time to delve into the most common cessation strategies. Based on the speaker's years of experience on dealing with smoking cessation programming, he will advance some new ideas for smoking cessation you might not have considered.
With a focus on why tobacco incentives and penalties are impactful and a review of the applicable compliance considerations, participants in this session will learn various strategies to adopt, implement and administer a successful vape/smoke-free workplace policy and a complimentary wellbeing program focused on abstinence from vaping and smoking:
