Cannabis Testing in the Workplace | Navigating the Hazy Landscape
28 June 2022WebinarPast Event
11:00 a.m. CT
Employers across the country are being caught in a tight squeeze because more states have legalized cannabis while at the same time increasing protections for those who use it medically and recreationally. State legal protections are increasingly banning or limiting employers from testing for cannabis. Especially for companies in industries like manufacturing and health care, where safety is a critical part of the job, this tension is raising fears among employers that more employees will be showing up to work impaired. But because of the way legalization has come about, there is no consistency across jurisdictions, leaving employers to sift through the haze of conflicting state laws.
Join us for this webinar where we will review the conflicting legal obligations employers face, look at the trends, and offer practical guidance to concerned employers. Our presenters include attorneys from different legal backgrounds, as well as a national expert on observing and measuring impairment.
