Implications of Medical Marijuana in the Workplace
|Date / Time:
Currently, 23 states and the District of Columbia have passed laws dealing with medical marijuana. The laws vary from state to state and offer differing levels of protections to users of medical marijuana.
Based on the recent trends of legalization of recreational marijuana in Colorado, Washington, Oregon and Alaska (District of Columbia still requires Congressional approval) the likelihood that employers will be forced to deal with employees using medical marijuana and/or recreational marijuana is on the rise. Such use raises many potential employment concerns such as the potential impact on drug testing policies, whether employers need to accommodate medical marijuana use and whether employers can or should discipline employees for use of medical marijuana.
This webinar helps the persons responsible for dealing with these employment concerns understand the varying state law requirements and the true impact of medical marijuana in the workplace. While medical marijuana adds one more potential headache for employers, this live webinar will provide employers with effective strategies for dealing with the haze caused by medical marijuana.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
