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.

As medical marijuana becomes legal in an increasing number of states, employers are facing potentially confusing questions about how to respond when job applicants or existing employees disclose that they are using some form of the drug for therapeutic reasons. In this topic, you will learn about the dichotomy between the federal Controlled Substances Act and state laws that authorize the growth, processing and sale of cannabis for either medical or adult use, as well as the myriad issues that arise in the employment context when those laws intersect and sometime conflict.
