And a survey of drug testing providers found nearly 50% no longer believe that urine will be the dominant testing method in the future. Join Bill Current of the Current Consulting Group for a timely presentation on what developments in 2023 tell us about the future of drug testing. He will cover specific suggestions on how CRAs can continue to meet their clients' employee screening needs by staying ahead of curve when it comes to state and federal drug testing trends.

2023 04: Effective Use of Experts in Screening Actions (April Webinar)
TRACK: Tenant Screening I PRESENTERS: Dave Gettings, Tim St George and Jessica Lohr I IN THIS SESSION: Screening cases require a company to marshal many different forms of proof. This evidence can come from the parties themselves ? whether it is information on the screening company's internal procedures, information on the substance of the report at issue, or information on the damages. Sometimes evidence is not enough for a screening company to tell the story of the case. We will discuss leveraging experts in screening litigation, including some "out-of-the box" uses that may not be readily-apparent, but can prove extremely effective.
