Federal law is fairly clear: Marijuana use or possession is still illegal. But the smoke screen comes from a jumble of state laws. So far, 29 states make marijuana legal for medical purposes. Recreational usage is legal in nine states. And both of these numbers are expected to grow. This webinar will cover:
- What the laws say – and how they impact your employee decisions
- How your state law interacts with federal law, and which you need to follow
- Best practices of testing for marijuana and illicit drugs in this new landscape. Is it time to drop your zero-tolerance policy?
- How to legally manage employees who hold Medical Marijuana cards – what your policy says … when you can test … and when you can discipline
- How the ADA (or state disability laws) may require you to accommodate marijuana usage
- When the FMLA covers leave for marijuana- or drug-related treatment
- How to react when you suspect an on-the-job accident was caused by a worker under the influence
- And much more!
For HR professionals and employers, employees' marijuana usage creates a Bermuda triangle of risk – employment law … health care … safety and more! Get all your questions answered and learn how to develop the most legally and operationally smart policies and procedures at this special workshop.
