Why Should You Attend:

The line between legal and illicit drug use, particularly when marijuana is involved has become increasingly blurry. Employers in locations with medical marijuana laws who wish to ensure a safe productive workforce need to know what they can and cannot do, what they must and need not do with respect to employees holding prescriptions for medical marijuana. Are they covered under the ADA/ADAAA? If so, once again, what are –and aren’t - you obligated to do? Taking proactive steps to learn your rights and responsibilities before a question arises is the smart thing to do. This webinar will help you do exactly that.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

State Medical Marijuana Laws
Conflicting Federal laws
Discussion of some State/Local Laws
Inquiring about legal drug use
Alcohol, Drugs and Disabilities
Fitness for Duty and the Direct Threat
Workplace policies
Case examples, case studies
