Marijuana & Drug Issues at Work:

An Employer Compliance Workshop

In this 75-minute online training, you will learn:

  • To stay in legal compliance

    How to stay in legal compliance with federal and state marijuana laws, as well as the FMLA and ADA

  • Why you need to update your employee handbook

    The rules of conduct you can set for your staff (on- and off-duty), and why you need to update your employee handbook this quarter

  • Ways to legally apply discipline

    How to identify signs of a marijuana problem and legally apply discipline

The times (and the laws) they are a-changin’

The complex maze of state and federal laws on marijuana use — along with the work-from-home trend and increasingly relaxed public attitude about the drug — has left employers and HR pros in a haze about how to handle several pot-related issues:

  • Can you just say no to employees’ off-duty usage … and what is "off-duty" for remote workers?
  • Can you (and should you) still test for marijuana?
  • How do you accommodate medical marijuana users to comply with the FMLA and ADA?
  • Vice President Harris wants to legalize marijuana nationwide. What changes are coming — and how should your company prepare?

Most states have made marijuana legal for medical purposes … 15 allow it for recreational usage ... a growing number have “decriminalized” it. The situation keeps changing, as do the employer traps for failing to stay on top of it.

On Friday, February 26, finally get legal clarity on this important issue in plain English (no legalese!) and discover the changes you need to make NOW.
