OVERVIEW
There are currently more questions than answers on the subject of the legalization of medical and recreational marijuana and how does medical marijuana affect the workplace.
The debate of the Federal illegality of medical and recreational marijuana versus marijuana use in states where marijuana has been legalized has raised questions on how this affects the workplace. The conflicting intersection between State and Federal law has made it challenging for employers to carry out their legal obligations.
As a result of the legal landscape surrounding marijuana being dynamic and changing quickly, employers must navigate a labyrinth of Federal and State statutes and court decisions when developing substance-abuse policies and drug-testing practices around marijuana use.
Now, more than ever, it is crucial for employers to be vigilant about this developing area of the law in order to navigate various employment issues carefully. Employers need to be aware of their rights and obligations with regard to marijuana and workplace safety.
WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND
Support for legalization of marijuana has grown exponentially in recent years. As a result, a majority of states have legalized medical and/or recreational use of marijuana. Yet, marijuana remains illegal under Federal law. As a result, employers need to be prepared to react when use of the drug intersects with their workplace policies.
Managing marijuana use by job applicants and employees, not to mention navigating the complex patchwork of Federal, State and local laws that often send confusing and conflicting messages, has left employers feeling a bit hazy.
Employers must understand these various laws while at the same time managing and maintaining a safe, efficient and productive workforce.
