Employers and HR managers are wondering how more relaxed marijuana laws will affect their handbook policies, and the workplace in general.  Mark Knoth describes the current legal landscape covering recreational and medical marijuana use. He addresses how State laws differs from Federal law, and how medical marijuana use is affected by the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Mark offers suggestions for your company’s handbook policies, and recommends upgrades to your drug testing practices. You will come away with information about:

  • Conflicts between Federal and State marijuana laws;
  • Trends in the courts and with arbitrators;
  • How to best address suspected marijuana use in the workplace; and
  • Understanding necessary policy changes to address legalized marijuana use.
