Marijuana Policy & Best Practices: Handling Employee Medical & Recreational Use


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

  • Minimize marijuana risks.

    Keep pace with evolving marijuana legislation, case law and regulations—and how they affect your organization.

  • Manage employee usage.

    Create legal, best-practice policies to manage employees’ marijuana use, while keeping the focus on productivity and safety.

  • Maximize legal & regulatory compliance.

    Learn how to comply with federal, state and city marijuana laws, and adhere to industry and government regulations.

Finally get clarity on how to manage the complex maze of questions related to marijuana and the workplace.

Can you fire employees for off-duty marijuana usage? Can you still test employees for it? Are you obligated to accommodate medical use? How do new laws and the ADA affect what you can and cannot prohibit? 

As the march toward nationwide legalization continues, your organization can’t afford to leave cannabis compliance to chance.

While marijuana remains illegal on the federal level, states swiftly are legalizing medical and recreational use. This patchwork of state laws leads to complicated questions on policies, testing, terminations, accommodations and more.

Regardless of where your state stands, now is the time for employers to address the risks and challenges posed by after-hours (and even on-the-job) marijuana use.

This webinar will help organizations understand, prepare for and manage marijuana use in compliance with the law. Learn how to implement best-practices marijuana policies to communicate rules, manage expectations, support productivity, ensure safety and comply with all federal and state laws.
