Public opinion on marijuana is shifting and states are responding by decriminalizing recreational marijuana usage and legalizing medical marijuana. But, as state laws on marijuana loosen, federal laws remain the same. As a result, employers could find themselves dazed and confused about how to adapt their drug-related policies and procedures.
Like a lot of employers you probably have a host of questions: What does the changing and conflicting laws mean for my drug policies? Can we still drug test employees? Can I fire workers who use medical marijuana? Do I have to permit the use of medical marijuana in the workplace? How do I balance safety concerns with employee wellness?
In this webcast, Danielle Urban, an attorney with Fisher & Phillips, a national labor and employment law firm that represents employers, will address the following:
