Course Description

Marijuana has long been heralded for its calming properties. But lately, it’s having quite the opposite effect on HR professionals, as they navigate the myriad state laws and court cases affecting the controversial substance to create drug-testing policies and procedures.

The new Marijuana legalization regulations have impacted Employers whether they are in a state where marijuana has been legalized for medicinal or recreational usage. In addition to federal restrictions and state restrictions, many Employers do not know what leverage or power they have to manage the balance between legal Marijuana usage and managing a true drug-free workplace program, consider reasonable accommodations, and mitigate other federal regulations.

This challenge impacts not only OSHA guidelines but also impacts the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and HIPPA Guidelines. Employers need guidance they can follow.

This CPE webinar provides that guidance and will help Employers reduce their risk!

States have continued to join the Legalized Marijuana bandwagon but there are still different state regulations that are different from each other. Now more than ever, employers in all jurisdictions should consider reviewing their existing drug testing or substance abuse policies and determine how best to address any employee positive test result for marijuana, especially in states with medical marijuana laws.

Setting aside marijuana laws, employers also must be mindful of state and local drug-testing statutes, some of which have specific policy requirements and require state approval of the employer’s drug-testing policy before conducting any tests.

Employers and Leadership must ensure they are following all the federal, state, and local Marijuana regulations that impact their state.

There is so much conflicting information that we should ensure what is accurate to be able to avoid the risk of fines, penalties, and even criminal sanctions.
