Navigating the Cannabis Legalization Minefield

August 11 @ 10:00 am 11:00 am PDT

As nearly every state has legalized or decriminalized cannabis in some form, possession and cultivation of marijuana remains illegal under federal law. Employers are faced with many difficult questions relating to employee use of cannabis products. This course will discuss the impact of cannabis legalization on screening and hiring employees, enacting drug-free workplace policies, and avoiding litigation risk including from negligent hiring, vicarious liability, employment discrimination and wrongful termination claims. We will explore current scientific limitations on testing for impairment, and the causes of false positive drug test results. You will learn about the movement to legalize cannabis, how to track developments in the law and where to find practical guidance for adapting your employment policies and practices as this area of the law continues to evolve.
