Event Description

OVERVIEW

Marijuana has been legalized in 28 states and the District of Columbia either for medicinal purposes or recreational use. What does this mean for employers? Employers should be aware that marijuana has a variety of impairment effects, including reduced reaction times, irritability, loss of focus, lethargy, disengagement with reality and poor decision making. Through this webinar, the challenges of cannabis in the workplace and the potential impact it will have on employers and employees will be discussed. Employers will be educated on the effects of marijuana on one’s duty to perform safety sensitive roles and the legal do’s and don’ts of marijuana in the workplace, including the implementation of testing programs; the legal accommodation of medical marijuana in the workplace and best practices for the implementation of workplace drug policies and programs.

WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND

Sixty-eight percent of Americans live in states that have reformed their marijuana laws by allowing medical marijuana, imposing a fine — not possible jail time — on marijuana possession, or making marijuana legally available and regulated for adults’ use. 

With polls showing that a majority of Americans support making marijuana use legal, and with 86% support for allowing medical marijuana, lawmakers are increasingly realizing the public supports marijuana policy reforms. Bills have been filed in 33 states to rethink failed marijuana policies.

  • Can employers prohibit marijuana use during work hours?
  • Can employers prohibit marijuana use even with a medical prescription?
  • Can employers continue to test for marijuana?
