California's New Marijuana Law: How Does It Impact Employers?

November 30

Employers face a whole new set of challenges with the advent of legal recreational marijuana in California.

Now that it is legal, what can employers do to regulate on-duty and off-duty use of marijuana by their employees? This topic will tackle the evolving legal and scientific challenges related to drug testing, policies for on- and off-duty marijuana use, medical versus recreational use, employees in jobs that impact public health and safety, safeguards for policies that treat marijuana like prescription opiates, accommodation requirements and chronic medical conditions, and other issues. Through a detailed overview of the existing law and presentation of various alternatives for policy-making, this material will help employers to understand and avoid potential legal pitfalls, develop practical workplace solutions that take into account the realities of the labor market, and implement compliance strategies to mitigate legal risks.

Learning Objectives

- You will be able to identify policy frameworks for employers.

- You will be able to recognize the prescription drug model.

- You will be able to discuss the current state of the law.

- You will be able to review employee use and drug testing policies.
