States that have passed a recreational marijuana law to strictly regulate the drug’s use – such as by banning public use, where it can bought, and how much can be grown at home. And more importantly, no state law forces an employer to tolerate its use in the workplace. If you recruit, hire or manage employees, you need to know the limits imposed by law – both on individuals and employers – so that you do not run into legal troubles.
In this webinar, employment law expert Jennifer Komsky will explain the recent legalization of recreational and medical marijuana in California and other states, and provide insights on how to keep the workplace drug free. You will learn how to handle the current conflict between the state and federal laws – and the legislation trends. You will also learn when and how to legally conduct drug screenings/testing, take action against an employee suspected of using marijuana – and what to do if an employee tests positive.
Komsky will also show you how to avoid disability discrimination claims, and advise you on the drug and alcohol policies you should have in place to comply with state and federal laws.
You will receive useful reference documents, sample policies, and legislative knowledge for regulations affecting the use, management and discipline concerning marijuana and other substances in California.
