Employment law attorney, Sean Ray presented the do’s and don’ts for things like drug testing, and proper language for writing company drug policies. It was the first of a series of workshops the Ashland Chamber of Commerce is hosting.

“When we have new things that come into effect like new laws and we hear how it might impact businesses we want to make sure to bring someone to the table who’s an expert,” Membership Development Manager Dana Preston says, “who can talk to them about it and help them through the process.”

Ray will be in Medford Tuesday morning, and in Grants Pass Tuesday afternoon hosting similar workshops for area businesses.
