Implications of Medical Marijuana in the Workplace

Medical marijuana legalization is impacting employers. Make sure you’re prepared to handle the impacts on the workplace.

Currently, 23 states and the District of Columbia have passed laws dealing with medical marijuana. The laws vary from state to state and offer differing levels of protections to users of medical marijuana. Based on the recent trends of legalization of recreational marijuana in Colorado, Washington, Oregon and Alaska (District of Columbia still requires Congressional approval) the likelihood that employers will be forced to deal with employees using medical marijuana and/or recreational marijuana is on the rise. Such use raises many potential employment concerns such as the potential impact on drug testing policies, whether employers need to accommodate medical marijuana use and whether employers can or should discipline employees for use of medical marijuana. This ondemand webinar helps the persons responsible for dealing with these employment concerns understand the varying state law requirements and the true impact of medical marijuana in the workplace. While medical marijuana adds one more potential headache for employers, this ondemand webinar will provide employers with effective strategies for dealing with the haze caused by medical marijuana.
