Description:

With more and more states legalizing the use of marijuana for medicinal or recreational purposes (oftentimes both), you’re likely to encounter more workplace issues as a result. And the law is far from settled, particularly given the Trump administration’s stated intention to tighten enforcement at the federal level, where the drug remains illegal.

What can you do to monitor and restrict cannabis usage or possession among employees? What about workplace safety issues? Can you legally limit the use of marijuana, as with alcohol, during or prior to work time? What kinds of tests can you administer? If an employee has a prescription for medical marijuana, does the ADA bar you from restricting usage or disciplining the employee for use?

Don’t get caught in the compliance “weeds.” Join our webinar for a breakdown of the latest compliance rules and learn what you can and cannot do legally to monitor the use of marijuana at work.

You’ll learn:

  • Which states have legalized marijuana for medicinal and/or recreational use
  • The practical implications of marijuana still being considered illegal—and a Schedule I drug—under federal law
  • How to address off-duty usage of marijuana
  • The latest move by the Trump Administration to tighten enforcement around marijuana use and distribution, and how that affects states and their laws
  • Best practices for federal contractors to follow with respect to drug testing and usage to ensure they don’t lose federal funding
  • Which state laws explicitly include employee non-discrimination protections, and which don’t
  • How medical marijuana laws interact with unemployment and workers’ comp
  • Whether medical marijuana usage may qualify as a reasonable ADA accommodation
  • How to develop and manage drug-testing policies and practices in light of the current legal landscape
  • What to do if an employee tests positive for marijuana usage
  • The role of fitness-for-duty evaluations, and best practices for workplace safety
  • And much more!

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
