Description:

More people are using marijuana these days, according to a recent Gallup poll. The survey reveals that 43 percent of adults nationwide have tried cannabis. Thirteen percent of respondents said they currently use it, and more than half of Americans favor the legalization of marijuana, the news outlet reported.

The newly released Quest Diagnostics Drug Testing Index™ also reveals that drug use among American workers has reached the highest level in 12 years. The findings came from analyzing 10 million workers’ employment-related drug tests.

Given the uptick, employers nationwide are left struggling to fully understand how recently passed state laws legalizing recreational marijuana possession and usage and other state laws authorizing the use of medical marijuana impact what they can and can’t do to monitor and restrict cannabis usage or possession among their employees.

While marijuana is still illegal under federal law, 28 states have passed legislation giving medical marijuana usage the green light. Eight states and the District of Columbia have legalized recreational marijuana. And, several states have enacted laws making the possession of small amounts of the drug a civil, not criminal, offense. How does the evolving legal landscape concerning medical and recreational marijuana affect employment policies on drug testing and off-duty conduct?

Don’t wind up in the compliance “weeds.” Join us for an in-depth webinar on addressing these issues and more.

You’ll learn:

  • The changing legal landscape—where and when medical marijuana and recreational marijuana are legal in states around the country and the District of Columbia
  • The position the Trump Administration is likely to take on the Controlled Substances Act, which lists marijuana as a Schedule I drug along with heroin, LSD, and other potent drugs
  • Best practices for federal contractors to follow with respect to drug testing and usage to ensure they don’t lose federal funding
  • Which state laws explicitly include employee non-discrimination protections and which likely don’t
  • Addressing the off-duty use of marijuana
  • How medical marijuana laws interact with unemployment and workers’ compensation-related benefits
  • Whether medical marijuana usage may qualify as a reasonable ADA accommodation
  • How to develop and manage drug-testing policies and practices in light of the current legal landscape
  • What to do if an employee tests positive for marijuana usage
  • The role of fitness for duty evaluations, and best practices for workplace safety
As a BONUS for attending, you’ll receive BLR’s handy State Law Chart Builder—Marijuana, which provides essential information on state law permitting marijuana usage.

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.

The live 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.
