What will delegates learn in Salzburg?
Legal / Ethics Session:
The challenges of implementing a drug testing program from an international perspective are multi-layered and complex.  A brief review of those challenges are as follows:

  • First, is it legally permissible to drug screen all or some employment candidates for drugs
  • Second, based upon the country’s laws is it feasible to conduct such testing
  • Third, is there an infrastructure in the country to support convenient collection and laboratory testing
  • Lastly, from a candidate psychology perspective, is drug testing palatable

All of the above bullets need to be addressed in order for an employer mandated testing program to be implemented.  Addressing these problems requires multiple stakeholders from individuals who have knowledge of in-country regulations and biases to a network of service providers that meet a given client’s need for testing.
During this session, multiple providers who have tackled these challenges from different perspectives will discuss how they handle these issues now as well as how they hope to do so in.

IFDAT have negotiated special discounted rates for hotel rooms. The nearest (“host”) hotel is at “The Westin Tampa Waterside” and is only 5 minutes walking distance from the IFDAT2024 venue. The second hotel is at the “Hyatt Place Tampa Downtown” and is 10 minutes walking distance from the IFDAT2024 venue.

We have negotiated these discounted rates for the dates of the conference AND for dates either side. Any additional days will be at the hotel’s standard rates. Room availability is limited and allocated on a “first come – first served” basis. If all rooms have been allocated, or your budget differs, then you will find many other good quality hotels in the area, with great transport links to the IFDAT2024 venue – the Tampa Convention Center.

PLEASE NOTE: The booking(s) is a contract between you and the hotel(s) directly and IFDAT cannot take any responsibility for any part of that contract. Please ensure you therefore read and understand the hotel’s Terms and Conditions of booking – including cancellation policy.

Unfortunately, we are unable to display the brochure or program from this year. Apologies for any inconvenience.
