Legal Alert is a monthly checklist from Atom Content Marketing highlighting new and pending laws, regulations, codes of practice and rulings that could have an impact on your business.

'Legal highs' are generally substances which are not themselves illegal, but which mimic the effects of illegal drugs. They are often sold as products that are not obviously for human consumption, such as bath salts or incense.

This guide helps employers assess the potential impact of legal highs in the workplace, and gives advice on how to address the issue in alcohol and drug policies, and how to deal with employees under the influence of legal highs at work.
