In the past, employers were able to rely on federal law in enforcing zero tolerance workplace drug policies. However, now that many states have legalized marijuana use for medical and/or recreational purposes and provided some sort of protection for marijuana users, employers are faced with a quandary when it comes to their workplace drug policies.

  • Do you include marijuana on a pre-employment drug screen? Should you test for it at all?
  • What do you do when someone tests positive for marijuana during a random drug test?
  • Should you revise your drug testing policy to address medical marijuana?

Let us help you clear the haze. This webinar will cover the latest developments in state and federal law regarding medical and recreational marijuana, including the newest prohibition related to pre-employment drug testing; discuss what rights and obligations employers have related to marijuana; and provide guidance on how to address common employer issues.
