Too many employers bury their head in the sand when it comes to compliance with labor and employment laws, especially when certain of those local laws are in conflict with federal law. Many do not realize that claims for discrimination and harassment may stem from employment actions based on drug and alcohol policies. In this session, expert speaker Jennifer Raphael Komsky, Esq. will provide employers with the tools they need to ensure compliance with the ever-changing landscape of employment laws concerning marijuana, drug and alcohol use in the workplace.
This session will provide guidance in coordinating the recent legalization of recreational and medical marijuana in California and other states and jurisdictions with the need to keep the workplace drug free. Being proactive and knowledgeable about the limits imposed by law on both individuals and employers will alleviate many employment problems for the duration of the employment relationship. This session is essential for anyone tasked with the recruitment, hiring or management of employees.
You will be provided with reference documents, sample policies and legislative knowledge for regulations affecting the use, management and discipline concerning marijuana and other substances in California businesses.
