Weed Out the Confusion About Marijuana Use Law

Gain an understanding of marijuana use law and how it relates to employer and employees' rights.

Many employers are struggling with compliance issues stemming from the patchwork of overlapping and conflicting marijuana regulations. This includes issues related to lawful use and privacy versus impairment and safety concerns. This information will help human resources professionals, managers, business owners, and attorneys understand how to effectively evaluate risks and implement strategies for compliance. Review hot topics including shifting legality of cannabis derivatives under federal and state law, disability law issues, health and safety, and drug testing in DOT-regulated and other industries. Failing to appreciate the nuances and preemptively address them can lead to costly industrial accidents, as well as discrimination, harassment, and retaliation litigation. This information is critical for protecting your business in a developing area of law.
