Weed in the Workplace:
Protecting Your Workplace from Discrimination after Legalization
Marijuana may be known for its calming properties – but recently it’s been having quite the opposite effect on HR professionals.
Cannabis remains illegal under federal law, but as state laws change at a dizzying rate, the conflicting regulations are a nightmare for employers.
Add the opioid epidemic into the mix and workplace safety is jeopardized, drug policies are further complicated, and a single misstep lands your company in the courtroom.
Employers need airtight policies in place that protect their employee’s safety while decreasing liability and defending the business from discriminatory claims.
Join us April 8th as we dive into well-balanced workplace drug policies critical for a healthy, safe workplace and legal compliance.
Here’s a sneak peek of what we’ll be covering:
- Generating effective drug policies that meet the challenges of this new era of legalized marijuana and the opioid epidemic
- Recent court decisions: Requirements to accommodate legal use of marijuana (and the implications under FMLA, the ADA, HIPAA, and other federal laws)
- How changing marijuana laws affect workplace safety (plus, what is and isn’t allowed in states where recreational or medical marijuana use is legal)
- Other laws and changes that could be on the horizon for federal regulations and state enforcements – and what that means for your workplace
